What we do
The Delaware Journal of Corporate Law is a student-edited publication established in 1975 at Widener Law Delaware as a medium to keep business-law practitioners abreast of critical issues within their areas of expertise.

The Journal produces three issues per volume in Delaware, the heart of American corporate activity, and is in a unique position to maintain a corporate law focus. However, the scope of our published content remains broad.
We publish articles that fall within the scope of the American Bar Association’s Section of Business Law, including:
Our readers benefit from exposure to myriad areas of developing law. In addition to Notes and Comments, we publish unpublished Delaware Court of Chancery decisions.
