Three lawyers and a law student are set to cook up a storm as members of this year's top 50 MasterChef Australia contestants.

In its second year, the popular reality television show will follow the trials and tribulations of 50 wannabe chefs until only one remains, thus being named Australia's next MasterChef and getting the opportunity to make a career out of cooking.

And it seems that lawyers have a penchant for hanging out in the kitchen, with the legal profession the most heavily represented of all the contestants' careers, which include teachers, doctors, public servants and cement renderers.

Beating thousands of hopefuls to the stove-top, this year's representatives from the legal profession include Victoria's Peter Kritikides and Claire Winton Burn, and South Australia's Adam Liaw.

Queensland's Sharnee Rawson is waving the flag for law students and, along with the others, will publicly demonstrate her culinary wares in an attempt to impress the panel of judges and be named in the show's final 24 contestants.

This is not the first time lawyers have made an impression in the popular competition, with last year's show featuring Minter Ellison's Perth managing partner John Poulsen, who also made it to the top 50.
