Writings by Professors Lucian Bebchuk LL.M. ’80 S.J.D. ’84, Mark Roe ’75, and Guhan Subramanian ’98 were included on this year’s list of 10 Best Corporate and Securities Articles, published in the legal journal “Corporate Practice Commentator.”
The top 10 list reflects the choices of leading legal scholars in the corporate law field. HLS professors have been honored on the list for the past eight years, and in seven of those past years, HLS has had multiple selections.
Bebchuk’s article, “The Myth of the Shareholder Franchise,” was published in the Virginia Law Review and examines shareholder power to remove corporate leadership. He directs the Program on Corporate Governance and was recently recognized for being the most downloaded author on the Social Science Research Network for 2007.
Published in the Harvard Law Review, Roe’s article, “Legal Origins, Politics, and Modern Stock Markets” takes an historical approach to understanding how law and politics have impacted the structure of stock markets. He joined the HLS faculty in 2001, when he was appointed as the David Berg Professor of Law.
Subramanian’s selection, “Post-Siliconix Freeze-outs: Theory and Evidence,” studies the recent increase in corporate freeze-outs. An expert in corporate dealmaking and mergers and acquisitions, he holds a joint appointment at HLS and the Harvard Business School.
