LAW D462: Integrated Transactional Program
Fall 2019 • Section DTP • CRN 22591

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.
