Paulette is emotionally abused by her ex-boyfriend. However, she does not forgive him and only goes to his house to reclaim custody of her dog.

Not explicitly, but Paulette's ex boyfriend is verbally abusive towards her and won't return her dog to her. In the scene where Elle and Paulette confront him he gets nasty to Paulette, but is ultimately put in his place by the ladies.

Yes. It goes on for several scenes and the act is depicted as a big win for Our Heroes. Meanwhile no sympathy is shown to the outed individuals. (SPOILERS) Elle clocks a key witness as gay when he says something sassy about her shoes. In the context of the case, this could be used to discredit him as a witness, so she tells the rest of the team, and one of the lawyers dramatically tricks him into outing both his boyfriend and himself.

A character refers to herself as fat in a self-depricating way. It's clear she considers it a flaw. She gets a happy ending without having to change herself though, for what it's worth.

No, but a professor uses a Black student as an example of someone who might lose his life due to legal uncertainty and whacks his head with a pencil to illustrate she’s talking about him.

Most of the sexual content is innuendo. There is mention of two characters spending 4 hours in a hot tub, for example. However, there is explicit mention of a woman being with an older man because of his penis size.

A male character earnestly admits to being bullied to the point of tears by a professor. He pauses and adds that he held it back until he was alone. Nobody ridicules him, but I felt there was a miiiild undercurrent of "played for laughs" about the whole thing.
