Again this year, UCLA School of Law will offer interested students the opportunity to compete in the 2014 National Transactional LawMeet. The LawMeet is a "moot court" experience for students interested in transactional practice. It requires students to work in teams to draft a transactional agreement and to negotiate its provisions with other student teams. Teams are judged by a panel of experts from practice who evaluate the teams’ success in achieving the goals of the parties. Prior years’ team members have found this to be a very valuable experience.
Joel Feuer and Sarah Korobkin from the Lowell Milken Institute will lead the September 17 information session, and past UCLA School of Law LawMeet team members will discuss the benefits of participating in the meet. Team coach Michael Woronoff, Adjunct Professor of Law and a Partner of Proskauer Rose LLP, will discuss preparation for the meet.
The Western Regional Round of the LawMeet will be held at UCLA School of Law on Friday, February 28, 2014. The National Meet will be held at the Earle Mack School of Law at Drexel University in Philadelphia on Thursday and Friday, April 3 and 4, 2014. All team members are required to be available to participate in both the Regional and National Meets. 2Ls, 3Ls and LLM students are all eligible to apply. UCLA will cover the travel and lodging expenses of UCLA student participants at the National Meet.
