2016

"The firm doesn't formally engage (at least not that I know) in pro bono work, which is disappointing. RPC is excellent with CSR initiatives but could improve on the pro bono side of things."
First year trainee, London
"I have been involved in various CSR initiatives, including a charity abseil!"
Second year trainee, London
"Pro bono very much seems to be an afterthought. However, this has recently been highlighted and a trainee-focused pro bono scheme is due to be set up shortly."
Second year trainee, Bristol
"There seems to be more of an emphasis on CSR initiatives than pro bono work but I have been involved with a number of CSR activities such as a charity Christmas single."
First year trainee, London
"The CSR programme could have a higher involvement rate and there is little by way of pro bono work conducted."
Second year trainee, London

2015

"There are a number of opportunities to get involved externally and also various internal events providing assistance to charities, including the dedicated form charity."
First year trainee, London
"We have a charity of the year with whom we work very closely doing work for them, as well as raising money."
First year trainee, London
"We have a dedicated charity of the year, rather than piecemeal projects throughout the year."
First year trainee, London
"Although there are not as many opportunities to get involved in pro bono as I would like, we do have a charity of the year which is great."

2014

"I would say that there is a reasonable commitment to corporate social responsibility work. I personally sit on the Bristol and firm-wide dedicated forums for this. It would be good if some of the time spent on corporate social responsibility work would be recognised in terms of our hour targets, however."
First year trainee, Bristol
"I was involved with clearing out a boatyard for local charity and some legal walks."
First year trainee, London
"I haven't done any actual pro bono work but I have been involved with work for our nominated charity."
First year trainee, London
