Top 25 Most Influential Lawyers Nomination Form

Canadian Lawyer’s Top 25 Most Influential in the justice system and legal profession is the magazine's most-read feature. The annual survey asks readers to nominate and then cast their votes for the profession’s best and brightest. The Top 25 celebrates those lawyers and judges who are making an impact on the laws, justice system, legal profession, and civil society in Canada and abroad. We ask that nominators focus on accomplishments within the last 18 months. In other words, this is not a lifetime achievement award. Please note all nominators will be kept confidential.
