"There is a busy corporate social responsibility team that involves the firm in a variety of pro bono projects and volunteering. I have been involved with fundraising events, volunteering at a local charity and sporting activities. However, I think the firm could do more to encourage everyone at the firm to undertake pro bono legal work, as well as general volunteering and fundraising."
