As described on Canadian Lawyer’s website:

The Top 25 Most Influential is not a lifetime achievement award but recognition of lawyers who have played a significant role in the legal profession and Canadian and international society in the last 18 months. Canadian Lawyer is defining “influential” as not just about bright stars, big deals, or number of media mentions — although those may play a part. It is about people who have power and influence the laws, justice system, and legal profession in Canada and abroad today.

The vote results will be announced in Fall 2020.
