Our pro bono and community work

We work on a wide variety of pro bono (legal) and community investment projects, with the main areas of focus being access to justice, social finance, education and employment. This work supports our responsibility to help build a fair and equitable society, as well as our commitment to our people, culture, clients and the wider legal sector.

We do this by:

  • giving free legal advice (also known as pro bono advice)
  • supporting community projects
  • funding the work of charitable organisations
