Course Description

LAW 988 - M & A Due Diligence

The due diligence process is essential to all transactions.  Without it, parties to a transaction will be unable to make informed decisions about their involvement in such transaction, including with respect to financial matters, key non-economic factors, risk allocation and post-transaction planning.  Understanding the due diligence process is also fundamental to a junior attorney’s professional growth – a thorough comprehension of the process is a necessary foundational building block of a successful transactional legal practice.  

The learning curve is quite steep.  Inexperienced attorneys are expected to analyze potentially overwhelming amounts of complex contractual provisions and carefully weigh other material considerations.  Such analysis may involve interpreting significant amounts of legal or other technical terminology that most have never encountered.  This course is designed to demystify the due diligence process and other elements of transactional law through hands-on, practical training.
