I know Shapiro, Cochran and Geragos all attended Loyola-LA.  I don't know about other popular lawyers of the past and present.  One would think that somebody successful and popular attended a T14....just wondering.

Edit: Found one:

Clarence Darrow, Michigan

I believe the entire Supreme Court, though I guess they aren't "lawyers."

Mesereau is not however-- Hastings grad. :)

Ditto the Supreme Court

Bill and Hillary Clinton

Several Congressmen that I don't care to name

If you mean criminal defense lawyers, very, very few...most people in the higher echelons of law consider that beneath them.

Arthur Liman (led Iran Contra probe, star litigator at one of the big NYC firms ... i think it was paul, weiss) went to Yale.  David Boies went to Yale (LLB) and NYU (LLM) law.  Ruth Bader Ginsburg went to CLS.  Kenn Starr went to Duke law.  Spitzer went to harvard.  Robert Morgenthau (Manhattan DA) went to Yale.  Guiliani went to NYU law. 

And those are just the lawyers.  It gets really crazy when you look at the politicians ... FDR at CLS, Clinton at YLS, Robert and Ted Kennedy at UVA, Obama at HLS, etc., etc.

Not a lawyer, but Woodrow Wilson attended UVa.

7 current senators, I believe. As well as the head of the NAACP legal defence fund.
