Next Week: Larry Cunningham on Warren Buffett and Succession Planning!

The Business Law Prof Blog is delighted to have as a guest blogger next week our friend and colleague Lawrence A. Cunningham (known to me as Larry!), of George Washington University Law School, who has just finished writing a new book being released in October called Berkshire Beyond Buffett: The Enduring Value of Values.  He will offer a few posts about aspects of the book during the week. We will kick it off Monday with some questions and answers.   

Larry is the Henry St. George Tucker III Research Professor at GW.  He teaches accounting, contracts, and corporate governance and has written extensively in all those areas.  He previously taught at Boston College Law School, where he served a term as Academic Dean, and Cardozo Law School, where he directed the Samuel and Ronnie Heyman Center on Corporate Governance.

Among his most cited articles are these scholarly jewels:

A Prescription to Retire the Rhetoric of “Principles-Based Systems” in Corporate Law, Securities Regulation and Accounting (Vanderbilt Law Review, 2007)

The Sarbanes-Oxley Yawn Heavy Rhetoric, Light Reform (And it Might Just Work) (Connecticut Law Review, 2003)

From Random Walks to Chaotic Crashes: The Linear Genealogy of the Efficient Capital Market Hypothesis (GW Law Review, 1994)

All are great reads.  Among his most notable books other than Berkshire Beyond Buffett (which is sure to be a hit!) are the following:

The Essays of Warren Buffett: Lessons for Corporate America  (self-published and distributed by Carolina Academic Press, 3d ed. 2013)

Contracts in the Real World: Stories of Popular Contracts and Why They Matter (Cambridge University Press, 2012)

Berkshire Beyond Buffett is now in the production and pre-ordering phase, garnering early attention among readers in both the investing and corporate governance communities, including: The Motley Fool (which also posted a written interview and video interviews here, here, here, and here);  BeyondProxy; and USA Today.  We look forward to our Q&A with Larry next week followed by his posts!
