Our global presence gives us not only an opportunity but also a responsibility to provide legal counsel and assistance to the communities in which we do business. Through our social responsibility initiative, we look for ways to apply our experience to the challenges faced by the global community.
For a detailed profile of our recent work, please view the microsite of our
2012 Social Responsibility Review.
Our social responsibility initiative focuses on five areas.
Our Global Pro Bono Practice focuses on three areas – providing access to justice, promoting the rule of law and serving the world’s leading non-governmental organizations.
Reaching more than 2,500 students, lawyers and judges worldwide, our legal education programs teach practical legal skills and cultivate interest in the rule of law.
From helping adults overcome employment obstacles to teaching children about the law and the legal profession to running, walking and cycling for charitable causes—our people give back.
Our charitable giving focuses on helping meet local community needs, funding legal education projects, supporting our pro bono partners and promoting diversity in the legal profession.
With our global green initiative, we continue to develop our internal strategy to improve our energy efficiency and minimize our carbon footprint.
