This year's list of 10 Best Corporate and Securities articles includes articles by four Harvard Law faculty: Professors Lucian Bebchuk, Einer Elhauge, Mark Roe and Guhan Subramanian. The list was chosen by corporate and securities law faculty from around the country and will be announced in an upcoming issue of the legal journal, "Corporate Practice Commentator."
Lucian Bebchuk: The Case for Increasing Shareholder Power, Harvard Law Review
Bebchuk directs the Program on Corporate Governance and is author of the recent book, "Pay without Performance: The Unfulfilled Promise of Executive Compensation." His work attracted attention recently when he proposed changes in corporate bylaws of specific companies. AIG, Bristol-Myers Squibb and Time-Warner amended their bylaws in response to Bebchuk's work, and his proposals will be on the ballots of five companies in the coming months. He graduated from HLS in 1980 and joined the faculty in 1985.

Elhauge is the faculty director of the new Petrie-Flom Center in Health Law Policy, Biotechnology and Bioethics. The center examines legal and ethical issues brought on by advances in genetics, technology and biotechnology, and it focuses on problems in heath law policy, including access, cost and quality of care. Elhauge teaches on a range of subjects, including antitrust, contracts and health care law. He graduated from HLS in 1986 and joined the faculty in 1995.
Mark Roe: Delaware's Politics, Harvard Law Review
Roe is the David Berg Professor of Law and focuses on corporate law, bankruptcy and finance. He graduated from HLS in 1975 and joined the faculty in 1999. He has been an author, editor or contributor of a number of works on corporate law. International interest in his work has prompted translations into Japanese, Italian and other languages. "Delaware’s Politics" follows his earlier law review piece, "Delaware’s Competition" (2003).

Subramanian, the Joseph Flom professor of law and business, specializes in corporations, negotiation and deal-making. He graduated from HLS and earned an M.B.A. from Harvard Business School in 1998.
