JCI in Lebanon for the “CSR LAW FIRM OF THE YEAR AWARD 2018”
Given its links with Lebanese judicial institutions in the context of the implementation of multilateral projects, JCI has been invited by the Beirut Bar Association to participate as jury of the CSR law fim of the year Award 2018. This competition has been organized for the first time by the Lebanese Association of Former Lawyers of the Francophone Law Sector (AAFFD) to reward the law firm of Beirut and Tripoli considered the most advanced in the field of corporate social and environmental responsibility.
JCI was represented by Mrs. Amal Abdallah, professor at the Lebanese University and JCI correspondent in Lebanon, and by the French National Bar Council, founding member of JCI, who delegated Mr. Mi Yang Paya, associate lawyer at the Paris Bar and member of the French Council.
22 firms from Beirut and Tripoli took part to this contest by answering a detailed questionnaire on their management practices in social and environmental matters. The questionnaires were marked by each member of the jury, on the basis of a pre-established scale, to establish a final ranking. The winning firm, Abdel SATER, was honoured at a gala ceremony on April 12, 2018.
This ceremony was a great opportunity to highlight the strong relationships between JCI and the Lebanese judicial world, while offering the National Council of French Bars and the Paris Bar an occasion to reinforce existing links with lawyers in Lebanon and the Beirut Bar Association.
