Structuring Transactions: Real Estate

The Structuring Transactions seminars are intended to explore practical aspects of structuring corporate, commercial, and/or business transactions, including drafting legal documents and negotiating the deal. Instructors typically teach one section a year. Please review the class schedule for which instructors are teaching in any term. Prerequisites for all sections: Corporations or Business Associations. Some sections may have additional prerequisites or recommended courses. In this case, a basic course in real estate is helpful, but not required. This section of Structuring Transactions will focus on the structuring, documentation and negotiation of real estate transactions from a practitioner's perspective. Students will work individually and in groups in preparation of documentation for several types of real estate transactions, including sales/acquisitions and leasing. Emphasis will be on developing drafting and negotiation skills in the context of real estate transactions with students expected to participate in mock negotiation sessions and drafting and redrafting documents. Method of evaluation: Grades will be based upon drafting assignments, class participation and attendance. Graduation writing requirements: Drafting assignments and other written work do not meet any of the Law School's graduation writing requirements.
