Podcast: Kenya calls to charitable lawyers
On the latest episode of The Lawyers Weekly Show, two Wotton + Kearney lawyers share how their professional and corporate responsibility to do pro bono and charitable work resulted in a trip to Kenya.
Heidi Nash-Smith and Karen Jones join our host, Lawyers Weekly journalist Lara Bullock, to chat about lawyers’ professional responsibility to give people access to justice through pro bono work, and law firms’ corporate responsibility to make a difference through charitable work.
Wotton + Kearney’s partnership with charity So They Can culminated in a group of lawyers travelling to Kenya recently to visit a school and orphanage set up by So They Can, and participate in the Masai Mara half marathon.
