Practice Areas: General Corporate and Corporate Finance

This course is one of the semester-long transaction simulations offered as part of the Transactional Law Program and satisfies the Transaction Simulation requirement of the Transactional Practice Concentration. The simulated transaction is the formation and initial financing of a privately-held company in the software industry. The transaction will expose students to the principal issues in counseling entrepreneurs as to their emerging businesses, including key elements such as entity creation, duties of management and control among owners, equity compensation, intellectual property protection, capital raising through preferred stock financing, and financing-related contracts based on industry-standard models. Through in-class discussions and graded homework assignments, students will simulate the work of practicing attorneys (both junior and senior) who counsel start-ups and their founders on a day-to-day basis.


A JD degree, plus deep substantive knowledge, expertise and practice experience representing start-up and early-stage companies, including but not limited to in connection with obtaining financing, are required. Prior law school teaching experience is strongly preferred. Applicants should email a letter of interest and a resume to Kent Coit, Director of the Transactional Law Program, at [email protected].

We are an equal opportunity employer and all qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, disability status, protected veteran status, or any other characteristic protected by law. We are a VEVRAA Federal Contractor.
