Schoenherr Hungary regards education as a focus of its CSR activities. We are committed to the future of the legal profession and actively contribute to the development of legal training in Hungary. Through a comprehensive internship programme in cooperation with universities and student alliances, our lawyers deliver university guest lectures with the aim of providing future lawyers with practical knowledge and skills.

Another significant issue that our firm is resolute to combat is the lack of education of underprivileged children. Through one of our initiatives, we have undertaken the task to boost the technological offering of schools to local students, by providing them with IT-related equipment including computers, laptops and monitors. Our partnership with Heliopolis the ‘Every Child is Precious’ Foundation further supports our aim to support disadvantaged young people in accessing foreign language learning opportunities and sick children in receiving better healthcare.

We vigorously encourage our lawyers to participate in pro bono projects which make a difference in the communities where we live and work. Recently, we organised employment law training primarily for non-profit organisations in the western-Hungarian region, through PILnet: The Global Network for Public Interest Law.

Our firm participates in various charity events. We are enthusiastic supporters of the annual CEE Legal Matters Budapest Law Firm Bowling Challenge with the proceeds donated to the winning team’s charity of choice, and we are actively engaged in expanding our CSR initiatives.
