This course introduces students to the fundamentals and critical topics in the law of mergers and acquisitions and the financial and transactional issues that they present. The principal focus of the course will be on the corporate law and securities regulation aspects of these transactions, the business incentives of the parties to the transactions, and the documentation and negotiation of the deals. Ancillary legal areas, such as tax and antitrust, will also be touched upon.

The course will study merger agreements and the important contractual issues they present. Students will explore mergers and acquisitions transactions as attempts by the transaction parties to attain business goals and will learn how legal rules and documentation constrain and create opportunity for the parties’ ability to achieve their objectives. The real-world problems faced by parties involved in these transactions, as well as those of judges who must adjudicate these deals, are considered. Current doctrinal and policy debates will be discussed throughout.
