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 such as U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder despite the fact that many now consider him the very antithesis of the rule of law in his support of the Obama kill list, the blocking of investigations of torture, and other policies. Also included are the current members of the United States Supreme Court but not former members like Sandra Day O’Connor or John Paul Stevens. This year also includes other academics such as Harvard Law Professor Vicki Jackson who was appointed to argue in the Windsor case on same-sex marriage. Also included is Washington University Law Professor Brian Tamanaha who wrote last year on the law school crisis as well as Richard Revesz of NYU Law School.
Thanks again to LawDragon and congratulations to everyone who made the list this year.
