We belong to and sponsor charitable organisations as part of our support for the legal community. 1COR provide annual financial support to the Bar Pro Bono Unit, Free Representation Unit and Personal Support Unit with members regularly giving their time free of charge to support cases passed to us by those units. Our longstanding involvement with these units has led to chambers being designated a “Platinum Friend in Law”. 1COR members are also involved in local associations and resources with chambers support, including Human Rights Lawyers Association (HRLA) or the Barrister’s Benevolent Association (BBA). Visit our Equality & Diversity page for information about our outreach work with the Sutton Trust here.
Chambers participate in the London Legal Walk in aid of the London Legal Support Trust and members complete sporting challenges, such as the London Marathon or Great Legal Bake, on behalf of charities. 1COR annually hold a Christmas Card Competition and pledge £200 to the winner’s charity of choice. Chambers is also proud to promote the arts through its support of the Temple Music Foundation (TMF).
