Abstract

Present study focuses female Lawyers, a community considered vigilant over their rights, suffering from cyber bullying within their professional lives at bar and chamber practice. This silent impact of cyber-bullying discourages young female lawyers to continue their profession leaving significant gender disparity (Siddique, 2013). Half of the participants tried to keep their encounters with bullying secret and did not seek legal remedy out of morality and defamation both at family and peer-groups. Furthermore, the findings of this study demonstrated that young female lawyers do not trust operation of legal system in remedying their grievance. It is also significant that some of female lawyers did not know about current legal framework on cyber harassment. This paper will deal the issue of cyber-bullying related to young female lawyers at three levels; statistical, legislative, and social awareness.
