Thanks to Robert Thompson (Vanderbilt) for sharing the following:
The Corporate Practice Commentator is pleased to announce the results of its annual poll of the 10 best corporate and securities articles. (Because of ties there are 11 on this year’s list.) Teachers in corporate and securities law were asked to select the best corporate and securities articles from a list of articles published during 2005. Because of the vagaries of publication, indexing, and mailing, some articles published in 2005 have a 2004 date, and not all articles containing a 2005 date were published in time to be included in this year’s list. The articles, listed in alphabetical order of the initial author, are:
