WHAT PEOPLE HAVE TO SAY
"The corporate law focus of this law review is most appropriate for a journal published in Delaware. It concerns an area of the law in which almost every practicing attorney is in some way interested and which touches the affairs of almost every citizen in some manner. The publication of this new journal will provide an opportunity, in this pervasive field, for suggesting new approaches to old by yet unsolved problems and for developing techniques to deal with new problems emerging from the changeable fabric of our economic life."
Hon. Collins J. Seitz, United States Court of Appeals Judge for the Third Circuit
Introduction, 1 DEL. J. CORP. L. ix (1976)
"As a former Chancellor and Third Circuit judge, Collins J. Seitz wrote in the Introduction to Volume One of the Journal that 'the new journal will provide the opportunity' to suggest 'new approaches to old but unsolved problems' for corporate issues 'emerging from the changeable fabric of our economic life.' Forty five years later, I have the privilege of marking this special anniversary. My father’s prediction has come true. The Journal has earned a nationwide reputation for excellence in the fast-paced and everchanging field of corporate and commercial law. Since Volume One in 1976, business transactions have become more complex. Technology propels commerce at warp speed. The law has a hard time keeping up. But every day, judges and lawyers reach for the Journal to help make sense of contemporary problems in corporate law. I congratulate the Journal for staying true to its Delaware roots, and look forward to many more years of ground-breaking scholarship from the Journal in corporate law - an area of the law that 'touches the affairs of almost every citizen in some manner.'"
Hon. Collins J. Seitz, Jr., Chief Justice, Supreme Court of Delaware

Locally, the Delaware Supreme Court and the Delaware Court of Chancery cite to articles printed in the Journal, including student-written comments. The Delaware Supreme Court cited to the Journal three times in the paramount case In re Walt Disney Co. 2 Derivative Litigation, 906 A.2d 27 (Del. 2006). In 2014, the Court of Chancery cited three Journal articles in its March 2014 decision in In re Rural Metro Corporation Stockholders Litigation, 2014 WL 971718 (Del. Ch. Mar. 7, 2014).
