Canadian Lawyer is calling for entries in the magazine's most-read feature

The search is on for the Top 25 Most Influential Lawyers

Nominations opened last week for Canadian Lawyer’s 14th annual Top 25 Most Influential Lawyers.

The survey asks readers to nominate the best in Canada’s justice system and the legal profession. Inclusion in the Top 25 is not a recognition of lifetime achievement. It is about the winners’ recent efforts to influence public opinion, help shape the law, contribute to the strength and quality of legal services, or have an impact on the justice community or government. 

The nomination process is simple, free, and only takes a few minutes. All it takes to get involved is to provide a few business details via this online form.

Entries close on Friday, April 7. 

From the nominations, a long list will be posted online from late April to late May, and readers can vote and comment on the nominees. Based on a short list of who received the most votes in each category, with considerations for regional representation, the members of our editorial board will determine the final list of 25. 

The successful nominees will be featured on Canadian Lawyer’s website in September. See last year’s winners here.
