CSR and Community

At Paragon Law, helping wider society is something which is integral to our operations. Not only does our work directly help members of the local community and wider society, but we also aim to help others through our work beyond the confines of the office. 

A particular point of focus for our work with the community concerns hosting various charity events as well as helping the local higher education providers. Helping young people is a particular focus of ours because we believe that investment in education is the key to social and global mobility. However, we also recognise that without older generations, there would be no younger ones and this combined with the issues of an ageing population has increased our commitment to protecting the human rights of the elderly.

 

 

Recently, the Paragon Group has:

  • Co-funded with Loughborough University a policy relevant PhD on highly skilled migrants and their contribution to the UK “knowledge – economy”. For more information, click here.
  • Established the Paragon Scholarship* for students on the part-time LLM in International Human Rights Law at the University of Nottingham. Paragon Law grants an annual scholarship, paying the tuition fees and, during the two years of study, providing the student with an internship at Paragon to gain practical experience.
  • Sponsored the Annual Human Rights Lecture in conjunction with the University of Nottingham.  Previous speakers have included Irene Khan, Secretary General of Amnesty International and Manfred Novak, the United Nation’s Special Rapporteur on Torture. The 2008 lecture took place in Malaysia and the theme for this high-profile event was “The Role of Women in Society”.
  • Presented the annual Paragon Law Award for the student with the highest overall marks on Nottingham Trent University’s LLM law programmes.
  • Supported the annual New College Nottingham Shine Awards, which recognise the achievements of the College’s international students.
  • Secured funding for a PhD study into human rights issues for the elderly. This in conjunction with the University of Nottingham and is the first collaborative doctoral award of its kind.  For more information visit: Business Professional Services
