Notes:

(1) The table is not meant to provide an exhaustive list, but merely to give an overview of some of the most prominent political lawyers. Although the group featured here is not representative, the sizes of the contingents broadly reflect the relative numerical importance of the various camps, insofar as this study has been able to determine them.

(2) Cohn, Rosenfeld, Levi, Löwenfeld, and Hirschberg followed the bulk of the USPD into the SPD in 1921/2. Theodor Liebknecht remained in the USPD, heading its Reichstag electoral list.

(3) NSDAP from 1933.

(4) Levi was head of the KPD after the murders of Liebknecht, Luxemburg and Leo Jogiches. Ousted from the party after his criticism of the March insurrections of 1921, he joined the USPD and subsequently the SPD.

(5) NSDAP from 1930.

(6) DNVP before ca. 1930.

(7) DNVP before 1931.
