After the Revolution in Corporate Law, 55 Journal of Legal Education 342 (2005)


Corporate law is a field that underwent as thorough a revolution in the
1980s as can be imagined, in scholarship and in practice, methodology, and
organization. The term "revolution" is invoked all too often in popular culture,
but as this article will suggest, it is entirely apt in this case. The revolution
in corporate law has been so thorough and profound that those working
in the field today would have considerable difficulty recognizing what it was
like twenty-five to thirty years ago. I was fortunate to have started out in law
teaching in that turbulent, transitional era, for it was an exciting time to be in
corporate law.
