Mergers and Acquisitions
Mergers and Acquisitions is a standard third year elective at many United States law schools. The course concerns itself mainly with the legal implications and practical aspects of the combination of business entities. Attention is paid to the economic and business reality which creates the context in which the legal issues arise. The course materials take a chronological review of the subject, from preliminary negotiations and letter of intent stages through definitive agreement drafting and closing, with litigation which may arise afterwards.
