This is 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 a short (5-page) midterm litigation drafting assignment and a take home final exam. Taught by leading practitioners who specialize in transactional litigation (from both plaintiff and defense firms), this course can provide the springboard into a valuable practice area.
