LAW 364P - Mergers and Acquisitions Practicum.


This practicum follows the life of an M&A transaction from client intake through initial transaction/project development, drafting and negotiating key M&A documents, researching and advising the client on key issues that arise in the transaction, and post closing dispute resolution. The class will be divided into “modules” focused on different stages or elements of the transaction, some of which will involve non-transactional legal doctrines. The modules will be only partially self-contained – the modules will overlap with each other, one ramping up while the other winds down, with certain issues raised early in the course being revisited in greater detail later. The objective of the course is to simulate the life of a practicing M&A attorney -- researching, drafting and negotiating the key corporate/transactional matters, but also being exposed to non-transactional subject matters – all designed to provided the experience of advising clients about the key issues that arise during the life of an M&A transaction. The class will emphasize contractual issues and formulating and delivering (both verbally and in writing) advice to clients in a transactional setting. The class will involve some, but less, substantive legal research. Five hours.Faglioni and SeeversPrerequisite:  Close Business Arrangements.  Recommended but not required:  Publicly Held Businesses.
