The legal profession doesn’t always get the credit it deserves for its positive impact on our economy and society. We see this impact every day, as we regularly manage translation projects covering mergers and acquisitions that safeguard and generate jobs; criminal litigation that helps deliver justice and compensation to victims and sensitive family law cases that can keep parents and children together. Absolute Translations is happy to support this work with experienced linguists offering a mastery not only of legal language but of the intricacies of legal systems.
The London Legal Support Trust is an independent charity that subsidises free legal services. Every May they call on the profession to enter a 10km sponsored walk around the city. Last year 12,000 people took part, raising a total of £800,000. That money has been distributed to law centres and citizens advice bureaux; refuges for vulnerable women and centres for housing and immigration advice. This enables all of them to help those most in need of legal support. Vulnerable people are finding access to justice. This has a direct impact on the reduction of debt; poverty and homelessness and helps the fight against discrimination and injustice. Doors are opening that would have remained closed if not for the goodwill of the legal profession.
Moreover, the list of teams participating in this year’s walk is growing quickly, and we’re not surprised to see many of our clients already signed up. Many more of them will help with fundraising projects spread throughout the year. Similar sponsored walks will take place across the south of England this summer and autumn; as well as a skydiving event and even a Great Legal Bake Off.
