This study attempts to examine male victims of partner abuse from their contact with a lawyer. The study involves interviews with three Swedish lawyers with longterm experiences of male clients exposed to this specific type of abuse. The results are aimed from the lawyer’s type of view and attempt to show a unique aspect of male victims initial contact with the legal system. The results are furthered by a discussion on communicated information, the coerciveness of contact-structure, and the performance of formal roles and institutionalized gender roles. (Less)
