Robert A. Clifford and Clifford Law Offices are Diamond Sponsors of the Lesbian and Gay Bar Association of Chicago’s (LAGBAC) 35th Anniversary Gala.
Founded in 1987, the mission of the LAGBAC is to unite and strengthen Chicago’s LGBTQ+ legal community through engagement, education, networking, scholarship opportunities, mentoring, and much more. The organization serves as a voice for the LGBTQ+ bar and aims to create a just society free of discrimination based on gender identity or sexual orientation through its supportive environment and professional development for all. The organization has grown to be one of the largest and most well-respected LGBTQ+ bar organizations in the country with its membership including lawyers, judges, elected officials, law students, and other legal professionals.
The event takes place on Friday, September 23, 2022, at the Peninsula Hotel Chicago in Chicago, IL. The program and formal dinner will begin at 7:00 pm, preceded by a cocktail hour at 6:00 pm.
The 35th Anniversary Gala benefits the LAGBAC Foundation, the charitable arm of LAGBAC that provides scholarships and legal education in an effort to improve access to the legal and judicial system for the LGBTQ+ community. Annual scholarships are awarded to local LGBTQ+ law students working in otherwise unpaid legal internships with organizations dedicated to promoting and supporting the LGBTQ+ community. The proceeds from the gala will go to fund these scholarships and LGBTQ+ legal education.
Robert A. Clifford and Clifford Law Offices proudly support the initiatives of the LAGBAC and the important work the organization implements to create opportunities for LGBTQ+ legal professionals in the Chicago area.
