This paper, working off the back of 2006's Freshfields report, outlined the legal standpoint for ethical investment. It was written by our Director of Finance to convince University Court members of the legality of EI. (There was some concern, as a standard interpretation of Trustee Law states that Trustees must seek maximum returns on investments.) It's a really useful document as it outlines all the key legal issues and the reasons why EI is a perfectly legal practice.
