Description

Course Description*

This course introduces the fundamentals of and critical topics in mergers and acquisitions law, as well as the financial and transactional issues that they present. The principal focus of the course will be on the key drivers of M&A activity, the business incentives of the parties to the transactions, and the documentation and negotiation of the deals. Tax, antitrust, securities and other regulatory issues will play a role as well.

Students will explore mergers and acquisitions transactions as attempts by the transaction parties to attain business goals and will learn how legal rules and documentation constrain and create opportunity for the parties’ ability to achieve their objectives.
In addition to case law, this course will spend a fair amount of time reviewing, analyzing and drafting deal documents (or portions of such documents). Students will analyze and learn to understand how core provisions of an acquisition agreement are negotiated to create value for and allocate risks among the parties.

Because this is intended to be a capstone course, Business Associations (Law 250) or its equivalent is a prerequisite for this class.
