Victoria University has confirmed that several of its students on a summer clerkship at one of the country's top law firms, Russell McVeagh, complained about the actions of lawyers towards them at social functions in Wellington two years ago. The police were involved but no charges have resulted. The complaints came to the attention of the universities at the highest level.
