The prize has been hugely successful in its second year receiving more than 1,890 artworks by over 740 artists. The shortlist included artists from Europe, Iran, China, India, South Africa, North, Central and South America who work across sculpture, painting, photography and other art forms.
Allen & Overy today announced it has joined the Fair Education Alliance, a coalition of organisations from across the UK’s business, education and charity sectors founded in 2014. Together, the Alliance is working to tackle educational inequality with the aim of building a fairer education for all by 2022.
In March 2016, A&O marked International Women’s Day by hosting a lively debate among an all-female panel of human rights advocates. The event was introduced by Annelies van der Pauw, Partner and Co-Head of Corporate Responsibility at Allen & Overy and chaired by Jenny Kleeman, an award-winning UK journalist and presenter of Channel 4’s Unreported World.
