Advanced Corporate Law

This course examines certain corporate finance issues, including the legal aspects of valuation, capital structure and leverage, the rights of various security holders and the dividend decision. It also takes an intensive look at the law of mergers and acquisitions. The focus here is on how to structure and document such transactions, the arsenal available to hostile acquirers and the defensive tactics available to unwilling targets, the principal Federal and state statutes regulating such transactions and the legal standards which are applicable to both hostile and friendly mergers and acquisitions. Finally, this course introduces students to the law of securities regulation in the United States, including the sale of securities under the Securities Act of 1933 and the regulation of trading in securities under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and, in such context, the rules against insider trading.
