I cross-referenced the men below with List of law life peerages to check that these Law Lords were created life peers, and didn't inherit peerage. Most Law Lords are created as Barons, but note the different ranks on Lord High Chancellors and Lord Keepers of Great Britain (1707–present).
I'm aware of changes in 2007 to the Lord Chancellor
Formerly, the Lord Chancellor was also the presiding officer of the House of Lords, the head of the judiciary in England and Wales and the presiding judge of the Chancery Division of the High Court of Justice, but the Constitutional Reform Act 2005 transferred these roles to the Lord Speaker, the Lord Chief Justice and the Chancellor of the High Court respectively.

Most Lords of Appeal in Ordinary (1876-2009) are barons save:
- Viscount Sumner (serving 1919-130).
- Viscount Radcliffe (1949-1964)
- Earl Hadwicke (1733-1737)
- Charles Pratt, Earl Camden (1762-1766)
- Sir Alexander Cockburn, Bt (1859-1875) wasn't created a Peer! Why not? Did he flub judging?
- Viscount Alverstone (1900-1913)
- Marquess of Reading (1913-1921). Wow! What did he do to be promoted to Marquess? Did he judge that masterfully?
