Corporate Practice Commentator's top 10 corporate and securities law articles of 2017 announced

Here is the announcement, I've inserted institutional affiliations of the scholars whose work was recognized:

 The Corporate Practice Commentator is pleased to announce the results of its twenty-fourth annual poll to select the ten best corporate and securities articles.  Teachers in corporate and securities law were asked to select the best corporate and securities articles from a list of articles published and indexed in legal journals during 2017.  More than 565 articles were on this year’s list.  Because of the vagaries of publication, indexing, and mailing, some articles published in 2017 have a 2016 date, and not all articles containing a 2017 date were published and indexed in time to be included in this year’s list.

The articles, listed in alphabetical order of the initial author, are:
