Commercial Transactions - Negotiation, Drafting, and Analysis
LAWS 48604
This simulation class provides intensive instruction in the negotiation, drafting, and analysis of complex commercial contracts. Students will develop the skills necessary to (i) translate a business deal into clear and concise contract terms, (ii) negotiate and draft various types of commercial contracts across multiple industries, and (iii) effectively and efficiently communicate complex commercial and contractual legal issues to clients. Grades will be based upon substantial weekly written exercises and productive class participation. This class will provide the student with opportunities to analyze and draft significant provisions across a range of different contracts (nondisclosure and confidentiality agreements, employment agreements, services agreement, and agreements for the sale of goods); and to participate in a simulated contract negotiation for the acquisition of an interest in a closely held limited liability company. The simulation will require not only in-class participation, but also negotiation sessions to be scheduled by teams of students (and possible team meetings) between class sessions. Students will develop the skills necessary to (i) translate a business deal into clear and concise contract terms, (ii) negotiate and draft various types of commercial contracts across multiple industries, and (iii) effectively and efficiently communicate complex commercial and contractual legal issues to clients.
