Times Top Legal 100 published

The Times Law pages has pitched into the seemingly insatiable "list" industry with publication of "Law 100", its list of the most powerful lawyers in the country. They claim that the list

"aims to be different: it is not a list of excellence, popularity or media mentions — although these can be factors. So it’s not just big names or brilliant stars (take comfort, those excluded). Instead, we tried to select the most powerful and influential within the law today — in the judiciary, private practice, in-house, public sector or politics."

Top of the overall list is Lord Bingham, the Senior Law Lord, but the top family lawyer in the list, coming in at no 6, is Baroness Hale. Other notable inclusions in the Top 1oo are Sir Mark Potter, Nick Mostyn QC, Diana Parker of Withers and Fiona Shackleton, who would probably now win a most recognised lawyer vote among the public.

The full run down of all the lists is on The Times website
