Two articles co-authored by Penn Law’s Saul A. Fox Distinguished Professor of Business Law Edward B. Rock L’83 appear on the Corporate Practice Commentator’s latest annual list of “Top 10 Corporate and Securities Articles.” The poll tabulates the top selections by teachers of corporate and securities law from a pool of more than 580 articles published in legal journals in 2011. Professor Rock’s articles have appeared in the top 10 list six years in a row.
Rock’s articles, co-authored with Marcel Kahan, are “When the Government Is the Controlling Shareholder,” from the Texas Law Review, and “The Insignificance of Proxy Access,” from the Virginia Law Review.
“When Government Is the Controlling Shareholder” deals with the recent government bailouts of major corporations, in which the U.S. Treasury invested in private firms. The article addresses how corporate law applies when the government is the controlling shareholder.
