4. Our Tradition
Arthur Cox has been at the forefront of law in Ireland since the formation of the State. Our lawyers have literally written the laws of this land.
Our founder, Arthur Cox, advised the drafters of the Irish Constitution in 1922.
He also drafted the Companies Act 1963. This was the seminal piece of company legislation in Ireland for the next 40 years until another Arthur Cox lawyer, Dr Thomas Courtney, was responsible for its replacement. Tom is chairman of the Company Law Reform Group – which drafted the Companies Act 2013.
At Arthur Cox, not only do you apply the law, but you work with the very individuals who drafted it.
5. Our Sense of Responsibility
Arthur Cox himself had a strong social conscience – moving to Zambia to join a Jesuit mission. Today we continue to incorporate this ethos in our day-to-day business.
The firm has a very active, well-developed, extensive and embedded Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) programme which has four pillars – Pro-bono work, Charitable Activities, Volunteering and the Environment.
One of the unique things about the Arthur Cox Trainee Programme is the opportunity to actively participate in our award-winning, trainee-led Zambia Project. The Arthur Cox Zambia Project is designed to raise the standard of living and improve educational and medical facilities in some of the most rural regions of Zambia.
