Corporate social responsibility
Pro bono and community involvement
We recognise that we have a responsibility to use our skills and
resources to help people in need, improve access to justice and
serve the greater interests of society. We feel that this is
particularly relevant in relation to our surrounding community.
Involvement in community projects is open to everyone; whether
it be by providing free legal advice to community organisations,
mentoring children in local schools or taking part in community
sports activities. We aim to encourage this commitment, to ensure
that we are recognised as a socially aware and active business, and
to make sure that everyone who participates gets proper credit.
Our main community involvement project is a numeracy scheme at
the Mulberry School on the Commercial Road in London and our main
pro bono project is the Queen Mary Legal Advice Centre at the
University of London.
A number of our partners sit on the governing bodies of
charitable and not for profit bodies including such diverse
organisations as AccountAbility, the Spitalfields Festival,
National Health Service Trusts and the Grierson Trust. Members of
our staff are also school governors in local schools.
