Mergers & Acquisitions

SLN #: 11562
Course Prefix: LAW-691
Course Section: 010
Credit Hours: 2
Instructor(s): Miner

Course Description:
This class will focus on mergers and acquisitions law, with a particular emphasis not only on applicable legal rules and doctrines but on the practical aspects of structuring, negotiating and memorializing transactions. To this end, the course will rely heavily on in-class simulations of the transactional lawyer’s role in the deal-making process.

In light of the interactive and practice-focused nature of this course, it will rely on student participation to a greater degree than in the typical law school course. For this reason, evaluation of the student performance will be based in part on participation. The precise grading criteria will be provided to students in the course syllabus prior to or at the first class session.

The bulk of this class is interactive and practice-focused, and therefore attendance is of particular importance. The instructors intend to give appropriate weight in grading to unexcused absence, tardiness, inadequate preparation, and poor class performance. Withdrawal for excessive absence will be recorded as a failing grade or as a withdrawal, at the instructors’ discretion.
