Our social responsibility can, we believe, best be provided through matters and on issues where we can add value to our core mission as lawyers. We support charities such as the British Institute of International and Comparative law and the Bingham Centre for the Rule of Law, as well as not-for-profit organisations dealing with public and social policy affecting the TMT sector, such as the International Institute of Communications.
Tim Cowen is a board member of the Bingham Centre, which is reviewing what can and should be done to reform corporate governance and facilitate companies fulfilling their Environmental and Corporate Social Responsibility aims through legally enforceable governance systems.
We support David Allen Green’s highly respected and independent legal blog, Law and Policy, and social media commentary on Brexit, blogging to over 200,000 followers and regularly writing for the Financial Times, New Scientist, The Guardian and other publications.
We also support educational charities, such as English Speaking Union (www.esu.org) which is a charity “working to give young people the speaking and listening skills and the cross-cultural understanding they need to thrive” and ORT UK, whose mission is “Impact Through Education”.
We are also active in supporting young people entering the legal profession and act as mentors to students at Queen Mary (University of London) and sponsor the Preiskel Prize for their LLM students.
