Investing in our communities

Supporting meaningful causes through volunteering and charitable giving

Through volunteering, our people worldwide engage in valuable projects for a wide range of causes. Our charitable giving supports pro bono partner organizations, legal education programs and charity partners and promotes diversity throughout the legal profession.

Our Global Citizenship campaign, Elevate, unifies Firmwide efforts

In 2023, White & Case launched its inaugural Global Citizenship campaign under the banner "Elevate: investing in the next generation." This campaign unifies and concentrates the Firm's Global Citizenship initiatives on educating, employing and empowering young people, thus amplifying the impact of our significant global work to date.

Protecting the environment

Every year, our people organize volunteering and charitable giving activities that support the environment. Recent initiatives include a park cleanup in Tampa, an educational event on living a low-carbon lifestyle in Beijing, an e-bike tour in Brussels, and a Firmwide trivia quiz to support reforestation in Ghana. Long-standing office highlights include a tree planting campaign in Beijing that started in 2009 and a decade-long collaboration with ZSL (the Zoological Society of London).

Providing access to the legal profession

For more than 12 years, our New York lawyers have organized an immersive Legal Diversity Pipeline Program in collaboration with Street Law. High school students from Harlem are taught legal topics in the classroom and then spend a day at the office to put the lessons into practice through contract negotiations and mock trials.

Teaching professional skills to the next generation

Urban debate leagues in the US provide underserved students with critical skills and positive outcomes, such as increased high school graduation and college acceptance rates. All of our US offices support local leagues through judging, coaching and hosting events. The Firm sponsors the National Association of Urban Debate Leagues and its White & Case NAUDL Alumni Fellows Program through weekly career-readiness roundtable discussions throughout the summer.
