The Times has published a list of the top 100 'most powerful lawyers' here. What a stupidly vague and pointless piece of space filling that was. Must have been a slow legal news day or something. It's not even what it purports to be, since famous / notorious / good at working the media / working in the field of human rights do not necessarily equate with 'powerful'. It's very sloppy and I'm not the only one to notice. Rather than bleat on I'm going to suggest you read the comments on the online article, which are rather more entertaining and informative than the list itself.
