The “Top 10 Corporate and Securities Articles of 2009” list, chosen by corporate law professors in a poll conducted by the Corporate Practice Commentator, includes two articles co-written by Stephen Choi, Murray and Kathleen Bring Professor of Law, and Marcel Kahan, George T. Lowy Professor of Law.

The journal’s annual poll drew on more than 500 articles published and indexed in legal journals in 2009. Making the cut were “Director Elections and the Role of Proxy Advisors” by Choi, Kahan, and Jill E. Fisch, published in the Southern California Law Review, and “How to Prevent Hard Cases from Making Bad Law: Bear Stearns, Delaware, and the Strategic Use of Comity” by Kahan and Edward Rock, published in the Emory Law Journal.

Over the 16-year history of the poll, Kahan has written or co-written more winning articles than any other author, with a total of 13. Choi is right behind Kahan, with a total of 10. Other NYU Law professors who have had articles on the list in previous years include William Allen, Nusbaum Professor of Law and Business; Jennifer Arlen, Norma Z. Paige Professor of Law; and Geoffrey Miller, Stuyvesant P. Comfort Professor of Law.
