Adv US Corporation Law (LLM Only) (LAW-795BW-001)
There are no notices at this time.
The course is designed as a survey course covering various aspects of Delaware General Corporation Law, securities regulation (including insider trading and public and private offerings), mergers and acquisitions, and corporate social responsibility. It will not be as comprehensive as the individual courses offered in such subjects, but will require an in depth knowledge of the course material assigned and a general familiarity with such subjects in your country of origin. In certain respects, the course will be taught as a seminar expected to enrich the experience of the students and allow them to freely pose questions to the Professor and other students in class. The course will also provide students that have an interest in U.S. business law with an opportunity to enrich their U.S. legal research and English writing skills, and thereby enhance their employment opportunities in the U.S. and other countries where English is the primary language of business.
