Fulcrum has a strong commitment to its Corporate Social Responsibility and works on various projects with local communities, charities, and organisations.
We are proud to work with Strive Consultants, a diversity and social mobility initiative which is committed to making a career in the legal profession more inclusive and accessible, and which views the definition of diversity as extending beyond the confines of race and gender to include disability, individual personal circumstances, educational backgrounds, and socio-economic status.
The organisation is passionate about addressing the imbalance of diversity in City Law, identifying and nurturing potential, and ensuring that there is an equal playing field. Our most recent collaboration, a webinar on Demystifying White Collar Crime, was a great success and gave students an insight into a career in the practice area.
Ark Globe Academy
Fulcrum hosted a workshop at its offices as part of Ark Globe Academy’s Future’s Week, in which students were given an insight into the legal profession, the opportunity to interact with our lawyers, and to debate a topical legal issue.
The Social Mobility Foundation
The Social Mobility Foundation is a charity which aims to improve the social mobility of young people. A number of Fulcrum’s lawyers act as mentors to students from underprivileged backgrounds seeking a career in law, offering advice on the drafting of personal statements, university and job applications, and interview practice.
