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. This year is the 10th anniversary of the annual report which has become very popular in the profession. I have been honored to be on the list in prior years and it is always gladdening to see so many friends and GW graduates on the list.
The Top 500 Lawyers again includes many familiar names such as the Supreme Court members and U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch as well as a few lower court judges like Richard Posner of the United States Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit. This year also includes fellow academic Erwin Chemerinsky, dean of the University of California, Irvine, Law School; Jeffrey Fisher of Stanford Law School; Martha Minnow, Dean, Harvard Law School; Maureen O’Rourke, Dean of Boston University Law School; Deanell Reece Tacha, Dean of Pepperdine Law; and David Wilkins, Dean of Harvard Law. It is wonderful to be in the company of such people and very satisfying to see academics make the list in such numbers.
Thanks again to LawDragon for the honor of the selection and congratulations to everyone who made the list this year.
