The powers that be are not all politicians. A lot many of them are from other backgrounds. Mostly legal. If we go through the Time magazine released last year, the Time 100, its annual list of the 100 most influential people in the world reveals that 11% of the 100 are lawyers. Most of these people had no recognition as lawyers. But they are well known in other alternative careers they chose for themselves – leaders of the free world, politicians on both sides of the aisle, and basketball CEOs.

“These legal eagles made their entry into the Time 100, and some were repeat honorees,” says class action lawyer Junilla Sledziewski. The legal professional or lawyer is defined as “a person learned in the law; as an attorney, counsel or solicitor; a person who is practicing law.”

The names in this list hold a law degree, irrespective of whether they practiced law or not.

  1. Hillary Clinton: She has held the title of WOPOTUS – First Lady, Secretary of State and Grandma, she is a repeat honoree and is giving Trump a competition for the post of President currently. A Democrat in the field, the only one. We can forgive her the email gaffe going by Laurene Powell Jobs’ notes; Hillary is also “one of America’s greatest modern creations,” and the lady may be thanking her Yale Law for it.
  2. Ruth Bader Ginsburg: R.B.G. had a blast of a year in 2014, in 2015 too, he had a big year. Ruth, America’s favorite justice has seen it all. She covers everything – t-shirts to memes, to wedding invitations, to books inspired by Tumblr, all of us including Justice Scalia knows by now that Ruth is all about truth. After all, Scalia says his opera buddy “is a source of collegiality and good judgment in all [the Supreme Court’s] work.” None of us want her to go. We love you, Justice Ginsburg. Please stay.
  3. Xi Jinping: he is a repeat honoree, the president of China. Jinping graduated from the Tsinghua University, with an LL.D. He’s most likely to become China’s most powerful leader like Mao. Doesn’t that seem a little ominous?
  4. Marine Le Pen: If this name isn’t familiar to you, Le Pen is the president of National Front, the third-largest political party in France. A lawyer and a powerful right-wing politician can be a dangerous combination to be. Defeating her will take much more than political will. France’s leaders will need to better their revolution bringing skills.
  5. barack obama lawyerMitch McConnell: A Kentucky Law graduate, Mitch is the longest-serving U.S. Senator in its history. Mitch has earned himself a reputation of a bit of a political villain in his role of as the Senate’s Majority Leader, but the Speaker of the House, John Boehner would have none of it. He thinks his bestie’s “mind is a marvelous machine.”
  6. Barack Obama: The first Black President of the US who has been there for two-terms is also another repeat honoree. The Harvard Law grad should be lauded for attempting to kick ass and take names in his own way. Plus, he opines that law school should be only two years long.
