ROCK GLOBALLY. GIVE LOCALLY.
Started in 2009 in London at one of the most celebrated live music venues in the world, Law Rocks! is a series of live "battle of the bands" style rock concerts in which bands comprised of musically brilliant law firms and barristers chambers battle it out on stage for charity. The winning band is determined by a combination of factors including the votes of a panel of judges. The net event proceeds are shared across all the charities being played for on the night, with the winning band’s designated charity benefitting best. To date, Law Rocks! has raised over £1,000,000, or US$1,500,000 and donated funds to various charities across the globe.
The mission of Law Rocks is to benefit amazing local nonprofit organizations in cities across the globe through our epic fundraising concerts, which star competing bands of talented legal professionals-turned-rockstars.
