Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is very important to our firm, as we thrive to do our best for our employees, clients and our community.
As a firm we have a collective responsibility to the wider community and the environment around us. The firm’s CSR programme uses the skills and expertise of our staff to support disadvantaged communities through provision of practical help and financial support to bring a positive change. The firm actively encourages its employees to get involved wherever possible.
We aim to have a positive impact by focussing on four key areas of CSR activity:
Increasing access to Justice
Our team supports young people from diverse backgrounds to develop their skills and aspirations for the future, through education, employability and enterprise support, work experience and mentoring programmes. We also give career advice to students considering the law as a profession.
We focus on Harrow, North West London.
We ensure that equal opportunities are offered to all employees by ensuring that all employees and job applicants receive equal access in relation to employment, terms and conditions, training, promotion and other benefits.
Our firm is an equal opportunities employer and treats people equally regardless of their racial group, colour, ethnic or national origin, nationality, religion or belief, age, gender, sexual orientation, disability or marital status.
We are fully committed to reducing the negative environmental impact of our business operations and the continual improvement in our environmental performance. We recognise that the firm’s environmental performance is the responsibility of everyone at the firm.
This is in addition to our compliance with legislation, regulations and codes of practice on environmental matters that are relevant to City Legal.
We continue to build on many aspects of our operational sustainability, such as:
Charity Partnerships and Volunteering
Our team is encouraged to get involved in supporting their community, whether it is on an individual basis or as part of a larger team and usually takes part in at least one charity event a year.
These are some of the organisations that we work with:
