The Delaware Journal of Corporate Law
is the most established law review of Widener University School of Law. Established in 1975, the Journal has continually provided the nation’s legal community with well-researched and analytical articles on issues of timely significance.
Because the Journal
is situated in Delaware, the heart of American corporate activity, it is in a unique position to maintain a corporate law focus. Its scope, however, is extremely broad. We consider for publication articles that fall within the scope of the American Bar Association’s Section of Business Law. Some of the current committees of that section are: Professional Responsibility; Insurance Law; Law Firms; Criminal Laws; Employee Benefits; Alternative Dispute Resolution; Environmental Controls; Food, Drug and Cosmetic Law; Health Law; International Business Law; Public Interest Issues; and Telecommunications. Accordingly, future members of the Journal
can expect to develop a range of knowledge extending far beyond corporate law.National Recognition

also prints unreported corporate opinions from the Delaware Court of Chancery.
