Top legal thinkers

Legal Affairs magazine has an online poll that will be used to select the "Top 20 Legal Thinkers in America." Voters are to choose among 125 nominees based on who they "think are the country's most influential and important legal thinkers—the ones whose ideas are pushing the law forward (or backward, as the case may be)."

Nominees include academic heavyweights like Richard Epstein, Cass Sunstein, and Larry Tribe; the nine Supreme Court justices and intellectual judicial luminaries such as Richard Posner, Frank Easterbrook, and Guido Calabresi; academic-bloggers such as Glenn Reynolds, Eugene Volokh, and Lawrence Solum; and -- among "writers/commentators" -- our own editor, Walter Olson.
