Description: Mergers and Acquisitions is an advanced course in business law intended for students interested in working as corporate and securities attorneys, as well as for students interested in commercial litigation, including specifically litigation arising out of broken deals (a not uncommon fact pattern). The course will involve both doctrinal law as well as the text of actual acquisition agreements used in practice. For students who will not have taken Securities Regulation and Business Tax either previously or concurrently, reference to the brief Nutshell (or comparable) commercial outline is recommended in order to achieve basic familiarity with those subject areas. The course will address multiple different areas of substantive law which bear upon the acquisition process.
Prerequisite: Co-req or Pre-req: Corporations or Business Organizations; Suggested: Securities Regulation, Business Tax
