Clifford Chance and the LGBT+ Undergraduate of the Year Award

We're delighted to be sponsoring the LGBT+ Undergraduate of the Year Award for the second year alongside National Student Pride and ATTITUDE. This award celebrates the diverse range of talent, endeavours, and achievements made by LGBT+ students.

If you identify as LGBT+, this is your opportunity to showcase the contributions that you have made in the LGBT+ space and to be a role model for other students who might be struggling with their identity or questioning what they can achieve personally and professionally.

But why would a global law firm sponsor this award, and why is your sexuality even important? Well, the answer is very simple.

Whether you've considered a career in law or not, providing legal services to our clients relies heavily on our amazingly talented and diverse people. Our clients are made up of a range of businesses, and to find ever better solutions to our clients’ most important challenges, we must build the best team, made up of people from a mix of backgrounds and identities.

It’s our aim to be the LGBT+ employer of choice in the legal sector, where our culture supports people to be themselves, all day, every day – so this award means everything to us.

"This award allows us to provide role models for students that might be questioning their identity or maybe what they can achieve personally and professionally. We’re keen to hear from people who might be able to support other students and be a role model themselves." Toby Horner, Graduate Recruitment Specialist and Co-Chair of Arcus London (LGBT+) Network
