Francis G. Pileggi Distinguished Lecture in Law[edit]

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[3] 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.

Membership selection[edit]

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.
