Global Citizenship

Our Global Citizenship initiative

Global Citizenship describes our role—as a business and as individuals—as active participants in the global community. Our Global Citizenship initiative encompasses pro bono work, legal education efforts – such as sponsoring the Philip C. Jessup International Law Moot Court Competition – our volunteer programs, charitable contributions and our responsible business practices, which include our responsibilities as signatory to the UN Global Compact and our environmental sustainability initiative. Through this strategically coordinated initiative, we fulfill our responsibilities to the global community with the greatest possible impact.
