The Top Ten Corporate Law Articles of the Past Year
Posted by David Zaring

The Corporate Practice Commentator has concluded its annual survey of articles in corporate law ("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 2007."). Here are the results:

Baker, Tom and Sean J. Griffith;The Missing Monitor in Corporate Governance: The Directors’ & Officers’ Liability Insurer. 95 Geo. L.J. 1795-1842 (2007).

Bebchuk, Lucian A.; The Myth of the Shareholder Franchise. 93 Va. L. Rev. 675-732 (2007).

Choi, Stephen J. and Robert B. Thompson; Securities Litigation and Its Lawyers: Changes During the First Decade After the PSLRA. 106 Colum. L. Rev. 1489-1533 (2006).

Coffee, John C., Jr; Reforming the Securities Class Action: An Essay on Deterrence and Its Implementation. 106 Colum. L. Rev. 1534-1586 (2006).

Cox, James D. and Randall S. Thomas; Does the Plaintiff Matter? An Empirical Analysis of Lead Plaintiffs in Securities Class Actions. 106 Colum. L. Rev. 1587-1640 (2006).

Eisenberg, Theodore and Geoffrey Miller; Ex Ante Choice of Law and Forum: An Empirical Analysis of Corporate Merger Agreements. 59 Vand. L. Rev. 1975-2013 (2006).

Gordon, Jeffrey N.; The Rise of Independent Directors in the United States, 1950-2005: Of Shareholder Value and Stock Market Prices. 59 Stan. L. Rev. 1465-1568 (2007).

Kahan, Marcel and Edward B. Rock; Hedge Funds in Corporate Governance and Corporate Control. 155 U. Pa. L. Rev. 1021-1093 (2007).

Langevoort, Donald C.; The Social Construction of Sarbanes-Oxley. 105 Mich. L. Rev. 1817-1855 (2007).

Roe, Mark J.; Legal Origins, Politics, and Modern Stock Markets. 120 Harv. L. Rev. 460-527 (2006).

Subramanian, Guhan; Post-Siliconix Freeze-outs: Theory and Evidence. 36 J. Legal Stud. 1-26 (2007).

Note that empirical work is big, but by no means exclusive, that there is only one peer-reivewed article on the list, and that, if I remember correctly, this list this year is a bit more top-ten oriented than it has been in years past.  Via.
