Chambers Social Responsibility (CSR)

Corporate social responsibility (CSR) is an approach to business that promotes ethical practices and socially responsible behaviour, and contributes to sustainable development. At the Bar, we use the term 'Chambers Social Responsibility'.

CSR, in our profession, includes topics such as:
  • pro bono work;
  • wellbeing initiatives;
  • social justice;
  • promotion of human rights; and
  • environmental responsibility.
Bar Sustainability Network

An initiative by the Bar Council run on our behalf by Achill Management a sustainability consultancy with expertise working within the legal profession. The Network provides a range of services and support for Chambers, Inns and others to help you transition to a more sustainable way of working – saving not just carbon emissions but costs.
