Transactional Litigation in Practice: a comprehensive course analyzing the strategic and tactical choices inherent in modern transactional (M&A) litigation, as well as the underlying doctrinal principals and theories of corporate governance that drive those choices. This is not a static area of law and significant developments in the field will likely occur during the semester. As a result, class discussions will evaluate not only the existing state of transactional litigation, but also where it is headed and which direction it should take. Course materials include briefs, arguments, and decisions from the Delaware Court of Chancery and Delaware Supreme Court - the home of most contemporary legal developments in transactional litigation - and articles or essays written by jurists and leading practitioners. Students will be expected to complete short (5-page) midterm paper and take home final exam. Taught by two leading practitioners who specialize exclusively in transactional litigation, this course can provide the springboard into a valuable practice area.


Attendance at the first class is mandatory for all currently enrolled and waitlisted students; any currently enrolled or waitlisted students who are not present on the first day of class (without prior permission of the instructor) will be dropped. The instructor will continue to take attendance throughout the add/drop period and anyone who moves off the waitlist into the class must continue to attend in order not to be dropped.
