Meet graduate employers: Clifford Chance

Clifford Chance is one of the world's pre-eminent law firms. With a global reach and thousands of lawyers working from dozens of offices around the world, we offer expert advice to clients on all aspects of commercial law. Clifford Chance's goal is to be the global law firm of choice for LGBT+ people and for LGBT+ causes.


Arcus is Clifford Chance's global network for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgendered (LGBT) colleagues and their friends. Arcus aims to encourage an inclusive and integrated culture within the Firm that gives colleagues the choice to be open and out. Arcus is Latin for rainbow, a popular symbol of gay pride and diversity. Arcus members are drawn from a wide cross-section of the Firm. All levels of lawyer (from trainee to partner) are represented together with a significant number of colleagues from business professionals.

Also, ACCEPT is Clifford Chance’s Diversity and Inclusion conference that aims to provide an opportunity for LGBT+ students interested in a career in law to hear from senior role models and understand how your sexuality can complement your career.


In this session the recruitment team will discuss:


  • LGBT+ people in the legal industry;
  • encouraging inclusivity in the workplace;
  • being yourself in the workplace;
  • how to stand out in your application.
