This seminar allows students to write a seminar paper on a topic of their choice, subject to instructor approval, in the field of mergers and acquisitions. The course consists of three parts, culminating in the submission of a final seminar paper: (1) discussion-based group sessions facilitated by the instructor that explore important debates in mergers and acquisitions; (2) one-on-one meetings between each student and the instructor addressing the student's paper topic; and (3) a student presentation and discussion of research conducted. The seminar paper satisfies the Law School’s Substantial Analytical Writing (SAW) requirement. The course grade is based 30% on class participation (including the in-class presentation) and 70% on the final paper.
