Welcome to Shearman & Sterling LLP's 2014 Associates’ Campaign for The Legal Aid Society!
The Campaign is a city-wide fundraising competition among New York firms to benfit the Society’s Civil Practice. In 2013 Shearman raised more than $12,000 for this incredible cause -- join us as we shoot for this year's goal of $15,000!
Since its start in 1939, the Campaign has grown to include more than 1,500 lawyers at 40 firms. Last year’s Campaign raised nearly $400,000 for Legal Aid—giving the Civil Practice the funds to directly help almost 120,000 children and adults, and to benefit nearly two million others through law reform. In fact, Campaign donations account for more than 1/3 of the individual contributions made to the Civil Practice each year!
At Shearman, we've always been proud of our place in New York's legal history. We can help the Civil Practice write the next chapter in that history, and make sure it reflects what's best about our city's legal community -- a committment to justice and an eagerness to help those who need it most. So dig deep, give generously, and watch for more information about this year's Campaign!
