LAW D462: Integrated Transactional Program
Spring 2019 • Section To Be Determined

Course Description

"Integrated Transactional Practice" is an innovative course package which combines Trusts and Estates, Professional Responsibility and transactional skills, such as interviewing, negotiation, counseling and drafting into a two-semester, ten-credit sequence. The course centers around six realistic client files which involve one family (except for a single pro bono matter). The simulation course work with these clients occurs in the two skills sections: Transactional Practice I and II. This includes counseling the mother regarding the disposition of shares of a family business under her will, negotiating and selling a piece of property from an estate, and selling the entire family business. Along the way, one of the children gets married and the mother seeks to persuade him to negotiate a prenuptial agreement, and later the son organizes a charitable business and has to face an IRS agent in an examination of organizational activities.
