The NLJ recently released their “Minority 40 Under 40” list of the top 40 minority lawyers under the age of 40. Its a fairly arbitrary marker of lawyerly accomplishment, but the NLJ clearly knows how much lawyers love lists. A few Supreme Court litigators make the list.

  • Leondra Kruger – Assistant to the Solicitor general and former Acting Principal Deputy Solicitor General
  • James Ho – Partner at Gibson Dunn and Former Solicitor General of Texas
  • Kannon Shanmugam – Partner at Williams & Connolly and former Assistant to the Solicitor General

The list includes several appellate lawyers – like Brian Matsui and Sarang Damle, for example – and countless Supreme Court clerks.
