At Ten Old Square, we recognise that our Corporate Social Responsibility is an important element of Chambers.
We participate in the annual London Legal Walk, to raise funds for the London Legal Support Trust which funds Law Centres and pro bono agencies in and around London. We have outlined some of the ways members of Ten Old Square have contributed to our philanthropy and volunteering efforts and benefitted the community.
Our Senior Clerk has provided well over 100 work experience placements for students aged 14 to 18 since 1992. Working with local education authorities, colleges, schools and trusts he has helped many young people – often from disadvantaged backgrounds – gain valuable experience of working in barristers’ chambers and many have succeeded in forging careers as barristers, solicitors, clerks and legal support staff. His support of the Bar Pro Bono Unit (now “Advocate”) led to him being awarded a “Pro Bono Hero Award” in 2008 by HM Attorney General.”
