Deep dive into Sustainability

Discover your firm's program with ALISS.


We want your insight.
Does CSR in law firms matter?

We’re eager to have your insight on sustainability efforts in law firms.  We’d be very thankful if you could take a minute to share your thoughts.  

  • There is increasing interest from clients on Social Responsibility and Sustainability efforts.  Relying on D&I efforts and Pro Bono stories is no longer sufficient.
  • Growing client numbers are aligning with the UN Sustainable Development Goals and they are increasingly expecting measurable results, including from law firm partners.

Are your firm’s efforts meeting these expectations or do you risk elimination in the RFP process?


The Law Firm Sustainability Network, together with Pamela Cone, graduate student in Corporate Social Responsibility at St. Michaels at the University of Toronto, is issuing this survey to assess the current status of sustainability efforts in the legal industry. 

Deadline to participate has been extended to  September 30th, 2018.

To express our gratitude, we will share a copy of the report with you.
