Legal Issues in Mergers & Acquisitions

B582 is taught by B. Broughman

This course explores both the legal rules regulating mergers and acquisitions, and the role of lawyers in helping their clients navigate such transactions. Particular attention will be given to how a lawyer can create value in this transactional setting. In addition to understanding legal rules, the course will consider how economic and financial principles shape legal strategy in this area.

Prerequisite: Corporations (B653).

Note: This class meets the second seven weeks of the semester, and is designed to supplement the Mergers and Acquisitions course taught by Professor Dave Greene at the Kelley School of Business, which meets in the first seven weeks of the semester. Professors Greenes class, however, is not a prerequisite for this class. A student can register for one or both of the courses.
