Course Memo

The course is an introduction to the legal rules and principles governing business combinations, including mergers and negotiated acquisitions and tender offers. The course examines the deal structures used in most transactions, focusing on tax and other statutory considerations as well relevant securities laws (federal and state). Fiduciary duties of boards of directors (largely Delaware corporations jurisprudence) will inform our studies. In addition, the merger agreement will have a role in the course, as we examine the structure of and typical provisions negotiated in the document.
