Last week we launched a new public legal education initiative to help people understand their rights when faced with non-disclosure agreements (NDAs).

Our new guidance is aimed to give people the awareness, knowledge and confidence to make informed choices. The guidance is available directly to the public and disseminated through partner organisations and law firms.

The guidance follows the concerns of the Women and Equalities Committee that victims of potentially unlawful discrimination and harassment may be reluctant to report their experiences.

“The legal profession has a responsibility to educate the public on complex and sometimes controversial aspects of the law,” said I. Stephanie Boyce, deputy vice president of the Law Society of England and Wales.
