This course introduces students to initial public offerings (“IPOs”) from the perspective of a leading practitioner. We will begin with an overview of the IPO process. Then, each class session will focus on a different aspect of the deal, including initial preparatory steps, who the players are, and the various processes and documents involved. The course will utilize various articles and case studies to give students a sense of what the IPO process entails. We will focus on practical applications of the rules to real-world situations, with the goal of preparing students post-graduation to be able to properly advise issuers, investors and underwriters on an IPO.

Law 255.5 - Securities Regulation is strongly recommended but not required.
