Evan J. Criddle, Paul B. Miller & Robert H. Sitkoff, The Rise of Fiduciary Law as a Field of Study, CLS Blue Sky Blog (Oct. 3, 2019).

Abstract: In recent years, the study of fiduciary law has undergone a paradigm shift. Rather than treat fiduciary principles as subsidiary elements of various fields of law, such as trust law or corporate law, a burgeoning group of scholars has undertaken to study fiduciary law as a coherent, general field of study that encompasses aspects of private and public law. Case law and academic commentary have progressed to the point that it is now possible to generate a detailed mapping of the field.
