Appraisal may be the Model Business Corporation Act's (MBCA) most distinctive and creative corporate law product in its sixty year history. Through a series of changes, beginning in the late 1970s and early 1980s, and continuing through revisions in 1999 and 2006, the MBCA has shown the value that can come from an ongoing revision process of corporate law. Thompson examines the challenges that have long plagued appraisal statutes, and then evaluating the product that has resulted from the MBCA approach.
