Several members of the Harvard Law School faculty and more than a dozen alumni were named to The National Law Journal’s list of 100 Most Influential Lawyers in America.

In publishing its first list since 2006, the journal said its goal was to identify members of law’s power elite. The list recognizes the 100 lawyers in the United States “who have shaped the legal world through their work in the courtroom, at the negotiating table, in the classroom or on Capitol Hill.”

Harvard Law School Professors Laurence Lessig and Cass Sunstein ’78, and Lecturers on Law Martin Bienenstock, Dale Cendali ’84, Thomas Goldstein and William Lee were included on this year’s list. Several of the alums on the list have also taught at HLS.
