Course Description
This course will explore the law of mergers and acquisitions (M&A). It will cover the history and key drivers of M&A activity, deal structures and regulation under state and federal law in the United States, valuation and appraisal, key aspects of the deal-making process, fiduciary duties, and other emerging issues in transactional legal practice. This course builds on the basic Business Associations course. It is intended both for students anticipating a career in transactional legal practice as well as for students seeking to develop a general understanding of issues in M&A transactions.
