The set has a long tradition of active engagement in the legal and wider community. We provide annual financial support for both the Bar Pro Bono Unit and the Free Representation Unit and Members regularly provide their time free of charge to support cases passed to us by those Units; and we provide free of charge, as a public service, the comprehensive and widely acclaimed Human Rights Update service and the UK Human Rights Blog. Former Members have continued this tradition of service while holding some of the highest judicial positions in the country.

We are committed to being as environmentally friendly in our practices as we can realistically be eg by recycling our waste, using recycled paper and conserving energy.
