Each year, the LGBTQ+ Bar recognizes 40 LGBTQ+ legal professionals under the age of 40 who have distinguished themselves in their field and have demonstrated a profound commitment to LGBTQ+ equality. The 40 Under 40 awards serve to identify truly excellent LGBTQ+ lawyers within and to the greater legal community, and in so doing, play an important part in building a pipeline for the future success of LGBTQ+ lawyers.
