Commercial Drafting

In this seminar students are introduced to basic drafting principles that govern business transactions and agreements.  The course covers not only acquisition agreements but a broad range of other instruments, including (depending on the professor) employment contracts, commercial leases, license agreements, loan agreements, and statutory filings.  Dealing with both business and legal issues, the course focuses on how to structure an agreement and draft it clearly.  In weekly assignments, students draft documents according to the instructions of a hypothetical client and may revise the agreement to reflect the professor's comments and changes in the deal.  3 credits.  Pre or Co-Requisite:  Corporations.
