Who will be America's Next Top Lawyer?
With Barak Obama's many new responsibilities as the newly elected President, appointing individuals to join his administration is one of the largest, most daunting tasks. Which lawyers will be appointed to senior positions by Obama? Valerie Jarrett, named Transition Co-Chair, is a close friend and advisor to the President-elect. She will be instrumental in molding the future shape of the administration. Her Co-chairman of the Obama-Biden Transition Project is John Podesta, a visiting professor of law at the Georgetown University Law Center and President of the Center for American Progress. Podesta said he will assist the transition, but he will return to the Center for American Progress once the task is completed. Attorney General speculations are targeted at Eric Holder and Deval Patrick. Secretary of State could be Greg Craig, a seasoned foreign affairs adviser.
