Fun reads--Richard Mendales's Collateralized Explosive Devices: Why Securities Regulation Failed to Prevent the CDO Meltdown, and How to Fix It
You can download Richard's paper from SSRN (here). Richard's got strength in both the commercial (Contracts through Bankruptcy) and corporate (Agency & Partnership, Corporations, and Securities Regulation) sides of business law. One of his courses looks at the ethics issues for transactional (non-litigator) lawyers. I've always enjoyed his stuff.
