Transaction Simulation: Auction and Sale of a Private Company

LAW JD 773

This course is one of the semester-long transaction simulations offered as part of the School's Transactional Law Program and satisfies the Transaction Simulation Requirement of the Transactional Practice Concentration. The simulated transaction is the auction and sale of a privately-held company in the single-cup coffee brewing industry. The course exposes students to the primary tasks undertaken by both junior and more senior attorneys in a private company auction and sale, and in doing so builds skills students will need as they enter transactional practice. Students will perform analytical, drafting and other legal tasks during each stage of the transaction from inception through closing, including marking up a form merger agreement, preparing the related disclosure schedules and negotiating the final agreed terms of these principal deal documents. Much of the course work will be done in teams representing the company being sold or a potential purchaser of that company. The course grade will be based on drafting assignments, contributions to team efforts and individual class participation. CLASS SIZE: Limited to 12 students. PREREQUISITE: Contract Drafting. PREREQUISITE OR COREQUISITE: Corporations. NOTES: This course does not satisfy the Upper-Class Writing Requirement. This course satisfies the Upper-Class Professional Skills Requirement.
