First draft of a paper which now appears in the journal 'Legal Ethics' Volume 18(2)
This paper considers the individual CSR policies of the top 100 English Law firms (as ranked by the trade publication 'The Lawyer'), what the firms categorise as constituting CSR activity and the public disclosures they make. The research highlights that few firms explain why they are committed to CSR and the quality of disclosures varied so widely that meaningful comparison was not possible.
