Class Content


This class addresses the basics of corporate drafting, using a commercial contract as an example. The instructor will focus on technical skills and concepts such as the basic structure of a contract, the interplay of representations and warranties, covenants, and conditions, and drafting and negotiating boilerplate language. 

Due diligence is a key piece of every corporate transaction. You'll learn how deal structure affects DD (and vice versa), what's in a standard DD checklist, issues to look for on both sides of the transaction, and practical tips on organizing and executing. Then you'll practice by modifying a DD template in the context of a simulated deal.
