Corporate Social Responsibility
To the legal community
As well as being passionate about helping lawyers reach their potential, we support a range of initiatives to encourage access to the legal profession, including PRIME, FutureReach and Aspiring Solicitors. Together these programmes encourage young people from a variety of backgrounds to pursue a legal career, with mentoring, practical advice and personal support.
The Legal Social Mobility partnership in association with Aspiring Solicitors
The LSMP is a collaboration of law firms, their partner clients and commercial organisations who work together to provide bright state school sixth form students from less privileged backgrounds access to a Work Insight and Skills Programme with the ultimate aim of broadening access to the legal profession and developing students’ career aspirations. The LSMP builds on the one-week PRIME legal work experience programme by offering a further week of work experience at major commercial organisations with the emphasis on developing valuable work and life skills. The main programme takes place over two weeks each July. In addition to this, and in order to provide an effective longer-term approach, in 2015 LSMP launched a LinkedIn LSMP Alumni group, to which all LSMP students are invited to join. Through the LinkedIn LSMP Alumni group, the LSMP students will have access to professionals from the various law firms and commercial organisations involved in LSMP. They can use these contacts as a resource pool, to provide support for anything from assistance with drafting personal statements for UCAS applications to preparing for their first training contract interview.

In collaboration with the United Nations, LexisNexis has launched the “Business for the Rule of Law” project – an exciting new global initiative to engage the business community in mobilising support for the Rule of Law.
Launched by the United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, it is led by a Steering Group, of which LexisNexis is proud to be a member. It will deliver a formal framework to show how companies from diverse regions and sectors can take action to support the Rule of Law in their business operations and relationships, in ways that complement but do not substitute government action.
A series of workshops have recently taken place across the globe in preparation of the creation of the formal framework. Click here
