Choi and Kahan recognized for best corporate and securities articles of 2008 by Corporate Practice Commentator


Three articles by two NYU Law faculty are among the "Top 10 Corporate and Securities Articles of 2008" selected by corporate law professors in a poll conducted by the Corporate Practice Commentator.

From among 450 published pieces, the journal named the following articles three of the 10 best: “The Market Penalty for Mutual Fund Scandals,” by Stephen Choi, Murray and Kathleen Bring Professor of Law, and Marcel Kahan, George T. Lowy Professor of Law (Boston University Law Review); “On Beyond CalPERS: Survey Evidence on the Developing Role of Public Pension Funds in Corporate Governance,” by Choi and Jill E. Fisch (Vanderbilt Law Review); and “The Hanging Chads of Corporate Voting,” by Kahan and Edward Rock (Georgetown Law Journal).

In the last seven years, this is the eighth time Kahan has received this honor and the sixth time for Choi. During this period, 16 articles written by NYU Law professors have received this distinction, including William Allen, Nusbaum Professor of Law and Business and director of the Pollack Center for Law and Business; Jennifer Arlen, Norma Z. Paige Professor of Law; and Geoffrey Miller, Stuyvesant P. Comfort Professor of Law.
