Wilberforce maintains a strong commitment to corporate social responsibility (CSR) and is actively involved in outreach and access programmes to help people from diverse backgrounds to develop a career at the Bar. For example, we have partnered with Sutton Trust and are keen supporters of their Pathways initiatives, which provide insight and training to young people from socio-economically disadvantaged backgrounds who are interested in pursuing or finding out more about a career in law (among other sectors). A number of our members act as mentors for Sutton Trust students and some of these students have done mini-pupillages in chambers.

We have also built strong relationships with the Legal Social Mobility Partnership, and the Pegasus and Bar Placement (Social Mobility Foundation) programmes, and provide support to the Barristers’ Benevolent Association and the Strand Trust (via sponsoring the King’s College London’s Trust Law prize, which rewards the student who obtains the best result in the LLB Law of Trusts examination each year).
