Strategies in Commercial Transactions

This seminar takes selected legal issues from the course, Commercial Transactions, and places them in a setting in which students make strategic decisions that involve the weighing of legal, business, ethical and human relations considerations. The focus of the course is on technology start-ups. The emphasis in this seminar will be on debt arrangements, venture capital, security devices, and bankruptcy planning. The goal of the seminar is to underscore how legal principles interact with other non-legal considerations in the resolution of business problems.
Scott Merrell,a practitioner with extensive experience in start-up transactions will co-teach the seminar. Students will work on a series of problems and will complete written responses and proposals, which will be reviewed and critiqued by the instructors. A prior or concurrent course in Business Associations is strongly advised.

In order to be enrolled in this course you must be concurrently enrolled in LAW 215 (Commercial Transactions)
