The Top 10 Corporate and Securities Articles of 2011 The Corporate Practice Commentator is pleased to announce the results of its eighteenth 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 2011. More than 580 articles were on this year’s list. Because of the vagaries of publication, indexing, and mailing, some articles published in 2011 have a 2010 date, and not all articles containing a 2011 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: Afsharipour, Afra. Transforming the allocation of deal risk through reverse termination fees. 63 Vand. L. Rev. 1161-1240 (2010).
