Lawyers' Hall of Fame

The Lawyer is celebrating its 20th anniversary and as part of the festivities it has launched a Lawyers' Hall of Fame . Three great family lawyers are on the list: Lady Justice Butler-Sloss, Baroness Hale & the late David Hershman QC. You can post comments on the site & make your own nominations. Maybe we should have a hall of fame specifically for family lawyers? On my list would have to be Professor Cretney, Richard White, David Bedingfield (for his wonderful books The Child in Need: Children, the State & the Law & Advocacy in Family Proceedings), Mr Justice Wall (the case management king), David Burrows & Roger Bird to name but a few. It might also be interesting to have a separate list for non-lawyers who have made a special contribution to family law: Professor Tim David, Julia Brophy, Angela Cannings, Matt O'Connor (founder of F4J)??? Who would be on your list?
