This course is the natural follow-up to the basic course in Business Organizations, which is a pre-requisite. The course explores several areas that are important to the practice of corporate law, including valuation, finance, mergers and acquisitions and corporate governance. No special background in corporate law other than Business Organizations is necessary, but a strong interest in the field is very helpful. A background in finance or accounting is not required but comfort with numbers is important. The course is oriented towards students who plan to practice corporate law either at a law firm or as in house counsel. However, the course will prove useful for anyone who plans to practice law in a business environment, particularly in Silicon Valley. The course could also be useful to students interested in policy issues related to the role of the corporation in American life and the role of corporate finance and governance in the global economy. Approved IP LL.M. course.
