Rutgers Law School students studying transactional law will get to put their knowledge to work at a two-day competition that tests their skills in negotiating a business acquisition, as counsel for both buyers and sellers.
On November 22 and 23, students enrolled in the Transactional Competition Course being taught by Professor Yuliya Guseva and Adjunct Professor Ira Marcus will take part in a Transactional Competition at Rutgers Law School’s Newark location. Starting at noon on Friday, November 22 students will work in teams, representing either the buyer or the seller in a business acquisition. The students will have marked up prior to the competition a stock purchase agreement that will be used in the negotiations. Each two-student team will take part in three rounds of negotiation during competition. The first two will be held on Friday afternoon and the final round will take place on Saturday morning. After each of the rounds, the judges, who are experienced practicing attorneys from New York and New Jersey, will review the markups, observe the negotiations, score student performances and provide feedback to the competitors. The Competition is modeled after a program developed at Cornell Law School.
REGISTRATION IS FREE FOR GUESTS WHO DO NOT WANT CLE WITH PROMO CODE NOCLE648.
Terms such as environmental-social-governance (ESG) investing, socially responsible investing, ethical investing, and impact investing are increasingly ubiquitous, both within and beyond the world of finance. More and more investors consider factors beyond financial returns and seek to achieve positive—or at least, not negative—social and environmental impacts. Amidst rapidly growing investor attention to ESG issues, an under-explored aspect of this phenomenon is the extent to which investors make decisions as a means for expressing their personally held values.
