LCLD is proud to announce that in 2020, 75 LCLD Member organizations were named Top Performers, 50 were named Compass Award winners, and 22 earned both designations. We applaud these Members for their continued commitment to building more diverse organizations and a more inclusive legal profession. 

The Top Performer award recognizes those organizations in the top 20% for participation in LCLD programs and activities. Due to COVID-19, in 2020 LCLD had fewer in-person meetings than in past years. But the pivot to virtual also allowed LCLD, with the help of Members and their organizations, to provide even more opportunities to connect. Twenty more organizations were named Top Performers in 2020 than in 2019. 

See the full list of Top Performers below. 

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

  • Member attendance at the Annual Meeting 
  • Participation in the LCLD Fellows Program 
  • Participation in the LCLD Pathfinder Program 
  • Participation in an LCLD Pipeline Program (the 1L Scholars Program or the Success in Law School Mentoring Program)
