The National Law Journal is seeking nominations for the country’s 100 most influential lawyers.

Candidates should be lawyers who have had a national impact in their legal fields and beyond over the last five years.

Merely holding an office or position of authority is not enough; we’re looking for attorneys with the demonstrated power to shape public affairs, launch industries and get big things done.

Judges and nonpracticing lawyers are not eligible.
