Draft contracts, negotiate deals, and counsel clients.

Today, firms expect new legal hires to contribute high quality, cost effective services from day one. The principal goal of our Transactional Law Program is to give our students a basic foundation of transactional practice skills they will need as they enter legal practice.

Develop skills in contract drafting and analysis, negotiation, client counseling, and deal making. Learn from seasoned transactional practitioners through intensive, hands-on training and practice. Acquire key practice skills that will help you stand out as you compete in the legal marketplace.
