In January 2015, Chambers and Partners launched Chambers Diversity, an extension of our successful Chambers Women in Law initiative led by Global Diversity Editor, Dee Sekar. Covering the UK, Europe, Asia, USA and Latin America, the programme will be unearthing the most outstanding lawyers who have shown a real commitment to advancing diversity in the law.
We are delighted to announce that the winner of our inaugural Chambers USA Diversity award is the Legal Recognition of Same-Sex Relationships Guide. A firm-wide pro bono effort established by Jones Day, the Guide is a free, online tool which summarizes the legal recognition of same-sex relationships in all U.N. recognised countries worldwide. Successfully linking both pro bono and LGBT initiatives, this is an example of a successful, practical and meaningful diversity initiative.
