The Forum Attracts Numerous Citations from Courts, Legislators, Regulators, and National Organizations

Tami Groswald Ozery is a co-Editor of the Forum and a Fellow at the Harvard Law School Program on Corporate Governance.

In the past fifteen years, Forum posts have had considerable influence on the corporate governance field. In an earlier post (see here), I discussed the vast number of citations that Forum posts have attracted from articles by academics and practitioners. This post, in turn focuses on the numerous citations that Forum posts have received from courts, regulators, legislators, and national organizations.

The list of such citations of Forum posts is available here. In particular, Forum posts have been cited by:

  • Court decisions, including by:
    • The Chancery Court of Delaware
    • United States District Courts in Virginia and Texas
  • Congressional bodies including:
    • The House Committee on Financial Services

Established in 2006 by Professor Lucian Bebchuk and the Harvard Law School Program on Corporate Governance, the Forum has become the leading online resource and the central outlet for the exchange of ideas and debate in the field of corporate governance. In an article about the Forum that was featured in the Harvard Law Bulletin a few years ago, former Chief Justice Leo Strine observed that “[i]t is amazing to see the [Forum] become required reading among the intelligentsia … of corporate governance.”

The success of the Forum has been made possible by the contribution of numerous authors, as well as by the engagement of the Forum’s ever-growing readership. We are deeply grateful for the support of our contributors and readers.
