Corporate Social Responsibility
Corrs staff are committed to making a difference to the broader community. Through the firm’s Giving Back program, staff contribute, not just financially but also with their skills, to those less fortunate.
The Giving Back program is wide-ranging and includes:
- Pro bono legal service: Corrs provides a legal service for disadvantaged individuals and groups, as well as for charitable and not-for-profit organisations such as The Conversation.
- Secondments: During our graduate rotation for new lawyers at Corrs, one graduate lawyer from each state joins the team of an independent, not-for-profit legal referral service, providing the organisation with an ongoing and reliable resource without dipping into their limited funds.
- Workplace Giving: Corrs’ Workplace Giving program allows our staff to make charitable donations from their pre-tax pay.
- Charitable donations and the community: Corrs regularly makes specific donations on behalf of the firm (for example, to the Victorian Bushfires and Queensland Floods), and is regularly involved in community programs such as the Daystar Literary Buddies program.
