The 2021-22 Fantasy League Medalists

This season the Competition Committee sought to provide stiffer opposition for the Gavels, perennial champions from the State Public Defender’s Office, by disbanding one of the other teams and distributing its members among the other three contenders.  The results are now in, and they mark the end of the Gavels’ domination that extended back to the inaugural season in 2015-16.  Although the Gavels acquitted themselves well in 2021-22—surpassing their average point total for the previous six seasons—they could not threaten this year’s new powerhouse, the Waivers, whose total of 145 points exceeded by 50 the highest mark ever posted by the Gavels.

Last month’s awards banquet honored not only the Waivers but also several individual firms that appeared regularly in the season’s weekly highlights.  Brightest among these stars were a group of five that each scored at least 30 points, led by the Wisconsin Institute for Law and Liberty with 49 points and joined by Troutman Pepper (33), Stafford Rosenbaum (32), Boardman & Clark (31), and Pines Bach (30).

The following table provides totals for each team and every individual law firm.
