This writing seminar will introduce students to the practice of business transactions law. Business transactions can, of course, take many forms, but most commonly involve either acquisitions or financings. These are fancy words for "purchases" and "investments," respectively. Other transactions include joint ventures, product development agreements, franchise agreements, licenses, and so on. This course is organized around two transactions: (i) the formation (financing) of an imaginary high-tech venture, and (ii) an asset purchase by that venture of another business. In addition to the skills component, students will be expected to draft documents, maintain a strategy journal, and complete several written assignments.
