Daily Journal Names Boalt Professors and Alumni to its Top 100 List
The Daily Journal named Professors Charles Weisselberg and Pamela Samuelson, and Mark Lemley '91 to its list of the Top 100 Lawyers in California, released this week. The list is compiled each year to highlight the state's most influential legal practitioners and academics. Weisselberg, Samuelson and Lemley are the only law professors named to the list.
Weisselberg, director of the Center for Clinical Education, was selected for his work to preserve the Miranda warning and his influence in Missouri v. Seibert, a U.S. Supreme Court decision. Samuelson, director of the Berkeley Center for Law & Technology, was named for her work with Boalt's Samuelson Law, Technology & Public Policy Clinic. Lemley, now at Stanford Law School, was chosen for his work on the Grokster copyright infringement case-which he did while he was a Boalt professor, and for his $58 million patent judgment for the University of Colorado Foundation.
The list also included nine Boalt alumni: Jeffrey Bleich '89, partner, Munger, Tolles & Olson in San Francisco; Elizabeth J. Cabraser '78, name partner, Lieff, Cabraser, Heimann & Bernstein in San Francisco; John Davies '62, of counsel, Allen Matkins Leck Gamble & Mallory in San Diego; Thelton Henderson '62, senior judge, U.S. District Court in San Francisco; John O'Toole '74, director, National Center for Youth Law in Oakland; John A.
