Contract Drafting and Negotiation for LL.M. StudentsThis course will focus on the basic principles of negotiation and contract drafting. Special emphasis will be placed on financial and corporate contracts. The material will be divided into three parts. First, we will cover the basic principles of effective negotiation. Second, we will cover the basic principles of clear and unambiguous contract drafting and we will study the basic ‘geography’ or building blocks of the contract. Finally, we will review and understand specific types of agreements; particular attention will be given to the Merger and Acquisition process and to the US financial system by studying Credit Agreements and other types of credit support documentation. The seminar is taught through a combination of lectures and hands-on drafting and negotiation exercises.
