The set has a long tradition of active engagement in the legal and wider community. Our members are active in the South-Eastern legal community, engaging with local legal organisations including Resolution, Thames Valley Family Lawyer’s Association and sponsor the Brighton Business School Prize for Family Law. 1COR members helped establish and continue to be closely involved with the Quality Circle in Sussex. We also have a regular team in the Brighton Metro Bank Pool League and, more recently, members of chambers were featured on a panel discussing the Ruth Bader Ginsberg documentary ‘RBG’.
Additionally, our members contribute to the widely acclaimed UK Human Rights Blog and Law Pod UK, a legal podcast, which provide case analysis, interviews and the latest legal news.
1COR consistently fundraise for charities close to their hearts, surpassing themselves each year with events, bake sales and sporting endeavours (details here). 1COR annually organise the Ghulam Hussain Volley Ball tournament which supports local charities such as Rocking Horse and British Heart foundation. Each year members participate in the London Legal Support Trust ‘Bake-Off’, run, go-kart, swim, cycle, golf and play netball to fundraise for The Oliver Fisher Trust. Each Christmas 1COR members donate gifts to the YMCA ‘Love in a Box’ appeal and, in 2017, Eleanor Battie volunteered with the ‘We are Here’ programme at a refugee camp.
