Clyde & Community
Clyde & Community is the firm’s pro bono and community investment programme.
Clyde & Community is the firm's global corporate responsibility programme, which supports:
- our external communities around the world through pro bono, community volunteering and charity partnerships, and
- our internal community, through diversity, inclusion and wellbeing.
A Global Community Council supports the Community Investment Team to develop the programme internationally and Regional Community Councils coordinate local office projects across the firm's network of offices.
The Clyde & Community programme is centred on two major themes:
- Access to Justice, through the provision of free legal assistance
- Inspiring Young Lives, supporting education, employment, future talent and entrepreneurship
50 Pro Bono Hours
Clyde & Co has a policy that up to 50 hours of firm-approved pro bono activities will be credited towards fee earners' billable targets. These hours will be treated as chargeable work in this context. This allowance applies to all fee earners globally.
