I agree with Tolley.  You also remove the passive voice.  If the writing is not too formal, you can say:


We should strongly consider legal principles as we establish a national anti-bullying policy.


Or flip the sentence around:


Any national anti-bullying policies should take legal principles into account.


The confusion is that Grammarly suggests removing the hyphen.  However, I've seen "anti-bullying" used the most, and I am sure style guides outside of Grammarly prefer that form.
