CSR at BPP University Law School

Through BPP University Law School’s Corporate Social Responsibility strategy, we use our position and voice to improve legal knowledge, help communities and raise aspirations.

Improving access to justice

Our pro bono projects provide free legal assistance to local communities and the most vulnerable in our society, across many areas of law.

Through our public legal education project Streetlaw, we work to empower individuals by making them more aware of their rights.

We also aim to ensure that future lawyers are engaged in social welfare law issues and can consider it as a career option. With this in mind, the Pro Bono Centre has one trainee undertaking a training contract in housing, family, employment and commercial law.

Committed to helping communities

We encourage BPP University staff and students to make a positive difference to communities, by raising money and lending their skills. Here’s just some of the ways we help:

  • Fundraising for the Legal Support Trust by running bake sales, quiz nights, and taking part in legal walks
  • Sending a team to volunteer in the Calais Refugee Camp before it was dismantled and supporting Care4Calais
  • Recruiting soup kitchen volunteers in London and Manchester
  • Providing training to volunteers for the charity A4ID
  • Helping ROLE UK recruit staff to deliver training in Rwanda
  • Delivering workshops with the National Justice Museum charity
  • Encouraging staff to work as trustees and leading by example

 Promoting inclusivity in the legal profession

At BPP University Law School, we aim to facilitate a legal profession open to all.

To help those with financial barriers, we offer a range of bursaries and scholarships to high achievers who might not have the finances to go to university, but do have the ability, commitment and dedication.

We are keen to introduce the idea of being a lawyer to young people who may not otherwise consider it an option. We deliver commercial awareness and life in law presentations in schools, offer our premises to youth projects, and provide work experience through Key4Life and St Mungos.
