This casebook embodies the conviction that theoretical and practical legal education are complementary and no more so than in the setting of M&A transactions, where corporate lawyers are regularly called upon to draw on their substantive knowledge of the law to advise clients on how best to effectuate their business objectives. Accordingly, this book retains the most significant judicial decisions in M&A jurisprudence while also making heavy use of textual explication, sample documentary provisions, and the latest teaching methods to deepen students’ understanding of the relevant case law and prepare them for practice.
The authors employ three principal pedagogical methods:
- Questions help students focus on information in the cases that is most relevant to the principles underlying specific topic areas.
- Problems hone students’ abilities to interpret and apply the material to novel situations similar to those they might be asked to analyze in practice.
- Skills exercises provide time-efficient transactional skills training to students in the context of M&A.
Additionally, this title is accompanied by online self-assessment quizzes, tied to the text, that help students gauge their understanding of the material.
