Top 25 Most Influential — voting now open

It's time once again to cast your votes in the sixth annual Canadian Lawyer Top 25 Most Influential. With a record 120 inspiring nominees, we will be picking the top 5 lawyers and judges in the following 5 categories:
  • • Corporate-commercial, including litigation, deals, class actions, etc.
  • • Criminal law/human rights
  • • Changemakers in any area or type of practice who have been leaders or catalysts for positive change in any area of the profession such as diversity, law firm management, the courts, education, etc.
  • • Government/non-profits/associations, including public inquiries, officers of Parliament, the courts, and academic institutions
  • • The world stage: Canadian lawyers and judges who have an influence on law and society beyond our borders.
Candidates have been placed in a category relating to their nomination, not necessarily reflecting their main area of practice.

The Top 25 Most Influential is not a lifetime achievement award but recognition of lawyers who have  played a significant role in the legal profession, justice system, and Canadian and international society in the last year to year and a half. Canadian Lawyer is defining “influential” as not just about bright stars, big deals, or number of media mentions — although those may play a part. It’s about people who have power and influence the laws, justice system, and legal profession in Canada and abroad today.

Please take the time to read through the amazing nominees and give us your picks for whom you think are the most worthy of being honoured.
