On 18 May 2017, Clayton Utz will host the annual Diversity Lecture at its Melbourne office. This year's lecture will be given in conjunction with Momentum, which is the Clayton Utz national women lawyers' network. Momentum aims to support women at Clayton Utz in building successful careers at the firm by promoting their professional and personal development, as well as providing networking and relationship development opportunities.
The Lecture will focus on the current legal framework surrounding imaged-based sexual abuse (aka "revenge porn") and potential areas of legislative reform. A key concern for victims of "revenge porn" is being able to seek legal redress for their suffering. The lecture will address this and other issues.
Pip Mitchell, Partner, and Gisela Nip, Lawyer, will present the Lecture alongside Mark Higginbotham, a Victoria Police Prosecutor specialising in prosecuting sexual offences.
