Best Corporate and Securities Articles of 1995
The Corporate Practice Commentator is pleased to
announce the results of its poll on the best corporate and securities articles
published during 1995. Experienced teachers in corporate and securities
laws were asked to select the seven best corporate and seven best securities
articles from a list of all articles published during 1995. Because of
the vagaries of publication and mailing some articles published in 1995
contain a 1994 date and not all articles containing a 1995 date were published
in time to be included in this list. The line between corporate and securities
law is not always clearly defined and there are some on one list that could
have been included on the other. The articles, listed in alphabetical order,
