Reply Link Anonymous 10 December 2007 at 18:17 Helena Kennedy Strange that Helena Kennedy QC doesn’t get a mention in your list… Reply Link Tony Radevsky 10 December 2007 at 18:22 Mr Justice Collins He should have been referred to as Lord Justice Lawrence Collins as he is now in the Court of Appeal, the first solicitor to be so apppointed Reply Link Anonymous 11 December 2007 at 09:50 The Lawyer Hall of Fame I would nominate to the Lawyer’s Hall of Fame Elish Angiolini QC – Scotland’s Lord Advocate and former Solicitor General for the intelligent and steady qualities of her legal leadership through successive Scottish administrations and Governments.

Regardless of any positives that he may have bestowed upon the legal profession, his racism and bigotry can not be swept underneath the carpet of history. It would be hard to imagine the construction industry celebrating Hitler’s role in the creation of the Autobahn, and as good as these roads are, the industry is right no to.

The most Senior Judge in the World! Surely that is something the British legal system should be proud of and I can’t think of a person more appropriate for the title “great and good”.

Lord Reid is another notable omission. Reply Link Lucille Morgan 11 February 2008 at 12:48 Constance Briscoe Now this is a woman of achievement – she overcame a childhood marred by abuse both physical and verbal. Put herself through university, distingused herself by working as a trainee in the chambers of Michael Mansfied QC and was later to the bar. A great inspiration!
