Life Cycle of an M&A Deal

Law 512



Writing Experience (WE)



This transition-to-practice course introduces students to a culminating event in the life of a business organization: the negotiated acquisition. Taking a chronological approach to the “life cycle” of a prototypical private company acquisition, the course surveys the work lawyers do at each of the main stages of the transaction. The course is directed at students who are considering careers as business lawyers – whether in private practice or as in-house counsel, and whether as transactional lawyers or litigators.

Professional Responsibility (can be taken simultaneously, but students should have some exposure to basic ethical concepts -- especially conflicts of interest -- as the course will examine these issues).
