The Lawdragon Hall of Fame honors lawyers for their enduring contributions to the legal profession. In its second year, we have chosen 23 new honorees who have dedicated their careers to the law. They range from plaintiff lawyers who have changed the lives of badly injured individuals to powerful corporate governance experts.
This year’s group includes the late U.S. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, whose lifelong embrace of the law, its quarrelsome crannies and soaring principles, defines our Hall of Fame.
