Transactional Skills Course
The transactional skills course is an exciting and practical bridge between the substantive law involved in transactions and the application of law to an actual deal. Focusing on real deals and real problems, experienced adjunct faculty conduct the course in an interactive seminar setting. Part of the course is the negotiation and the drafting of documents associated with a model transaction, such as confidentiality agreements, letters of intent, due diligence document requests, asset purchase agreements, and opinions of counsel. Another part of the course focuses on special problems associated with transactions, such as restrictive covenants. Ethical issues encountered in transactional practice are discussed throughout the course. Everyone participates and professors are invaluable sources of in-depth knowledge.
