The Committee retained Ernest Folk, professor at the University of Virginia, to write a study of the current Delaware General Corporation Law and make recommendations for its amendment. Due to the large size of the study we have divided it into four parts. The original document was not divided into parts. The table of contents and the page numbers indicated for each of the four parts may help you narrow your search or locate the material you wish to examine.
