Law Rocks


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. To date, Law Rocks! has raised over £1.9 million, or US$2,500,000 and donated funds to various charities across the globe.

The mission of Law Rocks is to promote music education for underprivileged youth and raise funds for local nonprofit organizations by combining the power of music and the generosity of the global legal community. We accomplish our mission through epic battle of the band fundraising concerts in cities across the globe that star legal professionals-turned-rockstars.
