“We are a go-to resource for cutting-edge articles that explore recent events and current developments in business and corporate law,” says Brett Norton of the Delaware Journal of Corporate Law
. Norton serves as one of the Articles Editors on volume XXXV of the Journal, but it was an article he helped edit the previous year that was cited on March 5th in the Wall Street Journal article “Equity Firms Cheer Return of ‘Staple’; Critics Don’t.
Working with friend and mentor Andrew G. Mirisis, Brett helped edit and prepare an article by Christopher Foulds of Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom for publication in the Delaware Journal of Corporate Law. “Andrew and I worked closely with the author, Christopher Foulds, to prepare his article for publication. Part of being an Articles Editor is interacting with leading practitioners and academics in the fields of corporate and business law,” notes Brett.
Brett is grateful for the opportunity that working on the journal has afforded him, saying, “Widener, through the Delaware Journal of Corporate Law, offers students the ability to showcase their practical skills and legal knowledge garnered through its rigorous course of study and come together as a team to publish an internationally known and respected academic journal.” Brett knows that his time spent on the Journal has been productive, and the Wall Street Journal citation is simply an affirmation of that.
“The best part about being on the Journal is being a member of a team. The relationships I developed with fellow students working together towards a common goal are unparalleled,” says Brett, concluding, “This experience will undoubtedly help me going forward in today's challenging legal market.”
