The 2021 LawFuel Twitter Power List - New Zealand Law's Top 20 Twitter List 3

Last year we posted the Top 20, and this year we have some new entrants and some surprise entries – plus (okay, you caught us) a couple of omissions.

We’re focused here on those with influence in the legal community in New Zealand. So it includes the inevitable lawyer/politician.

Take lawyer/consultant Steven Vincent for instance (27k followers). He’s a lawyer, he lives in London and he has a massive following, but he’s not influencial in legal circles, per se
