Law in business is all about the art of the deal.
At Emory Law we understand the importance of teaching our students how to successfully navigate the world of legal contracts and business deals. That’s why we offer a Certificate Program in Transactional Law and Practice.
Challenge: Gain real-world experience in deal-making that combines classroom activities with leading attorneys in practice.
Through Emory Law’s Certificate in Transactional Law and Practice, run through our innovative Center for Transactional Law and Practice, students can gain experience in the various areas of deal making. Classes are taught by leading practitioners.
Our curriculum is unique. It is an integrated transactional skills curriculum - a series of courses, each building on the one before. Your first course is Contract Drafting. That is followed by Deal Skills, which teaches you to do the work that deal lawyers do. Through real-world simulations, you will learn how to perform due diligence and how to draft resolutions, third-party opinion letters and closing documents. The final component of the program is the capstone course. Each capstone course is a semester-long simulation in which students role-play the lawyer in a transaction. Recent capstone courses include Mergers & Acquisitions, Private Equity, Venture Capital, The General Counsel and Commercial Real Estate. All capstone courses are team-taught by experienced practitioners who are members of the Georgia bar.
