Let us be clear the law has a long and very unsavoury history of seeking sexual favours in return for career advancement: whether that's getting a training contract, supporting an application for pupilage, an internal transfer into a more interesting area of law / prestigious office.

We are not fooling anyone if we try to deny this and the bleating about 'oooh I'm a bloke, we're endangered species' etc is just risible and frankly any one who makes that point loses any credibility at that point.

If you can't tell where the boundaries of acceptable behaviour are then you shouldn't be practising law.

PS yes, i'm a white, hetrosexual, middle aged man (dripping with privilege, I know).
