This course is a survey of the key concepts and cases in the law of mergers and acquisitions. It will cover central and emerging issues in the practice of M&A including the different ways to structure deals, the negotiation and drafting of merger agreements, the fiduciary standards that govern director conduct, defensive techniques, and the ancillary topics that M&A lawyers should know something about such as relevant securities regulations, tax matters, and antitrust. We will also discuss the economic logic of why parties merge and cover some finance and accounting basics, but the primary focus of the course will be legal rather than financial. Having taken Business Associations previously or taking it concurrently is preferred, but not required.
