Richard A. Saliterman, Author, First Edition, Advising Minnesota Business Corporations and Other Business Organizations (four hardbound volumes, one softbound volume or update / supplement).

It is believed to be the first of its kind published anywhere outside of New York. The set was initially written for Michie Butterworth and later published by LexisNexis, one of the nation’s leading law book publishers.

The article deals with the phenomenal problems confronting law given what many perceive is the diminishment and lessened “social capital” or cultural strength of the United States of America, which social capital in many respects provides a foundation for American capitalism and business enterprises. It is presented as a commentary on or review of and amplification of very important societal trends by eminent sociologist and futurist, Professor Robert Putnam of Harvard University in his work “Bowling Alone.” It has been the law firm’s honor to be called upon by Harvard University when Professor Putnam was in Minneapolis to assemble a small grouping of community leaders for Professor Putnam to present his work and outlook in an atmosphere of substantial candor.

This issue of the bar journal was intended to present views in separate articles of key members of the Hennepin County Bar Association of what had happened in their respective areas of law in the 1980s; and to provide some insight as to changes in the areas of law to expect and address during the following decade which was the last decade of the 20th century. It was very much intended as a chronicle or briefing for preparing the Bar for the end of the millennium.
Richard A. Saliterman, Author, Passing Comments of Outgoing Chair, August 1987, The Hennepin Lawyer (the official bar journal of the Hennepin County Bar Association). This article is intended to invite some insight into the meaning of a bar journal and a bar association for lawyers. At the time, Chairpersonship of The Hennepin Lawyer Committee, more than other bar journals in the state, perhaps, was considered a significant trusteeship. The journal contains articles which were written by leading authors and by others, often cited by lawyers, not only in Hennepin County District Court, but throughout the state; with the journal cited in opinions on all Minnesota court levels.

Constitutional Law; Legal History
Richard A. Saliterman, Author, Reflections on the Presidential Clemency Pardon, November-December 1984, The Hennepin Lawyer (the official bar journal of the Hennepin County Bar Association). This was written to generally familiarize members of the Hennepin County Bar Association with the work of the Presidential Clemency Board and Clemency Power that the author had and associated with for a very brief period of time, earlier. It was felt that this decision of President Ford was not well-covered by all media and understood by all lawyers, and much a product of or arising out of and during the very turbulent Vietnam War years.
Corporation and Business Law
Richard A. Saliterman, Co-author with Jeffrey B. Robins, Esq., Incorporating Under the New Minnesota Incorporation Act, 52 Hennepin Lawyer (the official bar journal of the Hennepin County Bar Association) 10, Nov.-Dec. 1982. This article much derived from the seminar for continuing education, which was approximately at the same time presented by author and others; was intended to help members of the bar adjust to and understand the new Minnesota Corporation Act. The new corporation act was perhaps the most important business legislation in the history of Minnesota since the initial incorporation act several decades earlier.

Corporation and Business Law
Richard A. Saliterman, Author, Dissolution and Buy-Out Provisions as Potential Solutions to Close Corporation Dissension, 1974 Utah Law Review 38. This article was republished in 24 Law Review Digest 15, 1974. This work is believed to be the first or among the very the first articles ever published in a university law review, or in a university law school associated law review, dealing with what remains a very serious subject of discord, dissention, and litigation within small and medium sized business corporations. The dysfunctionality and much inapplicability of the then business and corporate law helped worsen this circumstance; and to a significant extent it may still do so today. The article was written to help fill this legal rule protection vacuum and provide commentary for an advent of more responsive statutes to address it, and written on a nation-wide basis. It is considered a landmark article on the subject of introducing and recognizing the legal problems of small capitalized and medium capitalized businesses and their owners. Small and medium capitalized businesses are in many respects very substantially different than large and publicly-held corporations.

Constitutional Law; Legal History
Richard A. Saliterman, Author, An Examination of Some of the Factors which Influence the Outcome of Judicial Elections in Minnesota, 1968. This was the summa cum laude thesis of Richard A. Saliterman written while a student at the University of Minnesota. It is believed to be the first quantitative analysis of the variables affecting non-partisan judicial elections in Minnesota, and perhaps elsewhere throughout the country. The same variables or forces found to be in operation were essentially that which were present in partisan or party label type judicial and other elections (when certain controls were placed on the examination, such as for incumbency). Mr. Saliterman was assisted by then Minnesota Supreme Court Justice Frank T. Gallagher, who, in retired status, was actively writing several opinions for the Court; and by former Dean of the University of Minnesota College of Liberal Arts, and student advisor, Frank J. Sorauf, in the thesis. The thesis examination committee included Political Science Professor/U.S. Marine Corps Reserve General Harold W. Chase and Journalism School Professor Clifford J. Emory.
