Are non-private practice lawyers eligible for inclusion in Super Lawyers?

0

For all lists published in 2010 and after, we will no longer select non-private practice attorneys (e.g., in-house counsel, prosecutors, public defenders, non-practicing law professors, etc.). However, legal aid and legal services attorneys will continue to be eligible. There are several reasons for the change of this long-standing policy, the primary being 1) the central purpose of Super Lawyers is to help consumers (and lawyers making referrals) in their search for legal counsel. Since these lawyers cannot be hired or accept referrals, their inclusion doesn’t serve this goal; 2) the paucity of publicly available information, such as website bios, plus the lack of input we receive about non-private practice lawyers during the nomination and peer evaluation steps makes selection very difficult.
