The Top 10 Corporate and
Securities Articles of 2003
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 2003. Because of
the vagaries of publication, indexing, and mailing, some articles published
in 2003 have a 2002 date, and not all articles containing a 2003 date were
published in time to be included in this year’s list.
