Nowadays, the contribution of this sector concerning to the Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is still unknown. The purpose of this paper is to evaluate the companies of this sector by using a research methodology called “Evaluation of Social Responsibility” through the Social Organization survey. This measures CSR in six areas: Ethical Values and Principles, Economics and Finance, Quality of Working Life, Commitment to the Community, Responsible Marketing, and Environment. The results of the study showed the lack of activities performed in CSR within businesses, since they have no information regarding to CSR and the lack of interest in the economic, social and environment areas. Moreover, it was clear that legal companies are run by people with high level of studies, besides their long experience where most companies were developed.
