LGBTQ Affinity Group

Our affinity groups welcome and encourage participation from all lawyers

The LGBTQ Affinity Group is comprised of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning lawyers, in addition to straight allies. Throughout the year, the group hosts teleconferences, represents Cooley at national and local LGBTQ legal fundraisers and events, and drives recruiting by interviewing candidates at the annual Lavender Law Career Fair. Members of the group are instrumental in tracking firm policies to ensure Cooley receives a 100% score on the Human Right Campaign’s annual Corporate Equality Index.
