    The Best of The Business Lawyer represents a selection of the most significant articles on corporate law and corporate governance published in The Business Lawyer since its first publication in July 1946. The selection of articles to include was extremely difficult, since the field of corporate law is wide-ranging and the volume of articles on that topic published has been substantial. It is unfortunate that many other excellent articles were not included, however, the editors were careful in their selection to narrow the focus to corporate law and corporate governance broadly and not stray afield into the many outstanding articles on more specialized areas.

    For 75 years, The Business Lawyer has been a major contributor to the scholarship surrounding corporate law and its editors and authors have been distinguished scholars and practitioners who have notably impacted the areas of business law. The selected articles in this compilation cover the increasing focus on the duties and responsibilities of officers and directors and their relationship to shareholders including:

    • The role of corporation in society
    • Federal v. state corporate law
    • Corporate management
    • The business judgment rule
    • Officers and shareholders
    • Role of the SEC
    • Mergers and acquisitions
    • Role of counsel
