Jenner & Block has been named a Top Performer and Compass Award winner by the Leadership Council on Legal Diversity (LCLD). The awards recognize those law firms and corporations showing a strong commitment to building more diverse organizations and a more inclusive legal profession. The firm is among only 60 organizations to be honored with both awards for 2021.

LCLD is one of the nation’s leading organizations promoting diversity and consists of more than 350 corporate chief legal officers and law firm managing partners—the leadership of the profession—who have dedicated themselves to creating a truly diverse US legal profession.

The Top Performer award recognizes those organizations in the top 20 percent for participation in LCLD programs and activities.

The Compass Award recognizes those individuals and organizations that fulfill all of the following requirements in a single calendar year:

  • Member attendance at the 2020 LCLD Annual Membership Meeting and/or member attendance at a 2021 Leadership Summit and/or submission of a Leader’s Pledge.
  • Participation in the LCLD Fellows and Pathfinder Programs.
  • Participation in an LCLD Pipeline Program (the 1L Scholars program or the Success in Law School Mentoring Program).

This year, Partner AnnaMarie A. Van Hoesen was selected for the LCLD’s Fellowship Program. Associates Danielle Muniz and Amit B. Patel were selected for the Pathfinders Program.
