It is not just what we do, it is part of who we are.
We understand that we are part of the wider Australian community and legal profession, and we have set serious goals to assist us in addressing disadvantage and support access to justice in the communities in which we live and work.
Partners and employees have direct involvement with charities across Australia by volunteering and fundraising through Community Connect. This has enabled us to participate in numerous activities, with our Community Partners, including climbing mountains with children with Cerebral Palsy, holding 'mock' job interviews in schools and setting up mobile libraries for people living on the streets. We have financially supported our charity partners through the Clayton Utz Foundation, distributing over $8.3 million since 2003.
Our work with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people is reflected in our Reconciliation Action Plan, which commits us to working with Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians to overcome the challenges and disadvantage faced by Indigenous Australians.
We promote sustainable practices through Footprints with environmental initiatives that assist us to understand our impacts and incorporate sustainability into our decision making.
