Our community

As an extension of our passion for the education sector and commitment to providing exceptional service to our clients, our team engages in a variety of community activities, voluntary work and pro-bono legal work to provide a range of opportunities for young people.

Several of our staff also engage in the Reading in Schools scheme in local schools, many of us also serve as school and academy governors and some are Teach First mentors. We have also launched MoreLaw, an innovative scheme for the benefit of academies in some of our academy group clients’ schools and TalkLaw an interactive range of workshops aimed at both primary and secondary pupils.

Outside of education focused community work, we have a dedicated Community Action Committee that arrange and carry out a range of projects including the creation of allotments and sending teams of eager volunteers to dig ditches, clear canal basins, build benches and lots more!
