Social Responsibility

Weil is committed to engaging as a responsible corporate citizen in the communities where we live and work. We are one of the first law firms in the legal industry to establish a comprehensive social responsibility program, including a charitable foundation, leading the firm to mobilize attorneys and administrative staff and ultimately help bring about social change.

The Latest

We are pleased to announce the 2021-2022 class of the Weil Legal Innovators Program (WLI), our multi-stakeholder philanthropic initiative which is now in its second year.
