The Delaware Journal of Corporate Law (Bluebook abbreviation Del. J. Corp. L.) is Widener University School of Law's original law review. The journal was established in 1976 and publishes three issues per annual volume.[1] In addition to scholarly articles, the journal publishes opinions from the Delaware Court of Chancery that are not otherwise printed in a regional reporter. It ranks among the top specialized legal journals the United States based on the number of citations from federal and state courts. In 2008, the journal ranked 10th out of 411 specialized journals based on citations in state and federal court opinions and 1st among student-edited journals in the category "Corporate Law and Business Law".[2]



While the journal maintains a corporate focus, it seeks to publish articles that come within the broad scope of the American Bar Association's Section on Business Law. Some of the current committees of that section are: Professional Responsibility, Insurance law, Law Firms, Criminal Laws, Employee Benefits, Alternative Dispute Resolution, Environmental Controls, Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Law, Health Law, International Business Law, Public Interest Issues, and Telecommunications.[3]

Francis G. Pileggi Distinguished Lecture in Law

The journal hosts the Annual Francis G. Pileggi Distinguished Lecture in Law. This lecture series, held in Wilmington, Delaware, is presented to the Delaware Bench and Bar and focuses on developing issues in the area of corporate law. Notable past Pileggi Lecturers[4] include Ralph K. Winter, Jr. (1986-1987), Louis Loss (1987-1988), Joel Seligman (1997-1998), Lynn A. Stout (2001-2002), Robert B. Thompson (2003-2004), Melvin A. Eisenberg (2004-2005), Stephen Bainbridge (2005-2006), and Mark J. Roe (2007-2008).

Membership selection

The journal offers three methods for obtaining membership. First, those students whose academic performance has placed them in the top 5% of their respective class after first semester for regular division students or third semester for evening division students are extended invitations to join. Second, students that have completed first-year regular division or second-year evening division may obtain membership through the Summer Writing Competition. This competition takes into consideration both the student’s competition paper and grades. Finally, students, after completion of either second-year regular division or third-year extended division, may submit a paper on a pre-approved topic as part of the Superior Authorship Competition. Participation in this competition is also subject to a minimum GPA requirement.
