Clifford Chance US LLP


Clifford Chance is a global firm with over 3,200 lawyers in key technology and financial centers across the Americas, Europe and Asia. We ensure we can benefit our clients by combining the highest global standards of business and law with local excellence of service and by maintaining the depth, quality and scale of resources necessary to meet our clients’ needs whenever and wherever they arise.

We see diversity as essential to the development of a thriving, globally integrated firm. It’s a competitive strength; our people come from many different countries and backgrounds because we recognize success depends not only on understanding the law but also the business characteristics and local culture of our clients, wherever they may be.

While we understand that a diverse legal profession is highly important, we also appreciate that without proper preparation most students find the law school experience overwhelming and extremely difficult to earn top grades. That is why Clifford Chance decided to sponsor scholarships to Law Preview’s law school prep course — a program that some of our most successful lawyers took before they themselves entered law school.
