LawDragon Selects Top 500 Lawyers

LawDragon has released the results of its increasingly popular survey of the top lawyers in America. I was fortunate to again make the list this year.

The Top 500 Lawyers again includes many familiar names from Carter Phillips to David Bois to the current members of the United States Supreme Court. This year also includes two other academics: Harvard’s Elizabeth Warren and California Irvine’s Edwin Chemerinsky. Warren however is listed as “government/academic” due to her run for the Senate.

Thanks again to LawDragon and congratulations to everyone who made the list this year.

  1. pete,

    I’ve heard it said that 10,000 hours of study is required to become an expert. Considering that L&O only goes to the courtroom in the bottom half of the hour and that only about half of that time touches on technical aspects of law (and usually criminal law), that’s a minimum of 30,000 episodes. TNT and USA are going to love you.

  2. Law DeSchilde:

    I took the bait and read the Scribd entry. I would describe it as a rambling, incoherent, disorganized, half-witted rant. Imagine if you can a semi-literate Hunter Thompson tripping on acid with a copy of Black’s Law Dictionary at his side.

    Other than that, it was fine.

  3. well deserved Professor Turley

    but dammit i didn’t make it, again. how many episodes of “law and order” do i have to watch?

  4. If the venire pools of the country could pick a list of the best trial lawyers you would not see many of these country club guys.

  5. A judge is not necessarily a trial lawyer and a lawyer who has never tried a court case before a jury should not be on some list of 500. Scalia and Clarence should not be there. It is a list of New Yorkers and then east and west coast with one or two from Chicago and Little Rock.
