Business Trans Practicum I
Business Transactions Practicum I
The goal of this course is to provide students with an introduction to what will be expected of them in corporate practice in a private law firm. The course focuses primarily on business transactions involving fledgling enterprises. Students work with real-world situations and actual documentation, and are exposed to the legal and practical considerations encountered by entrepreneurs and those who supply capital to fledgling enterprises (including venture capitalists). Assignments are designed to simulate conditions encountered by young associates interacting with a senior partner on client projects. Grading will be based upon in-class assignments (including review of actual agreements, markup work and group problem-solving). There is no exam or final project. Class size will be limited to 25 students, and a statement of interest is required for admission to the class. #657 Enterprise Organization is normally a prerequisite, but may be taken concurrently.
