This course will teach law students how to negotiate basic business contracts such as confidentiality agreements, purchase agreements, and equity holder agreements. After studying principles of negotiation and applicable contract provisions, students will engage in a series of negotiating projects, including proposing strategic and tactical objectives, drafting exercises, and negotiation sessions. Class sessions will also include guest lectures and analysis and discussion of sample business contracts, student negotiations and market studies. Students should leave the course with a solid foundation for more principled, persuasive and successful negotiation in a variety of business contexts.
