Who Should Attend

This executive education program is intended for lawyers trained outside the United States seeking to expand or grow their practices, or transition to a new, business-oriented practice. It is also well-suited for U.S. trained lawyers without a corporate background who are seeking to gain a deeper understanding of business-centric practice areas of U.S law. Practitioners who complete the course will gain a broader understanding of the unique legal considerations relevant at different points in a business’s diverse life cycle and an introduction to the skills needed to represent clients or provide internal and external advice to businesses during those life cycles.

This week-long executive program will focus on several areas of corporate law that are relevant at various times in a business’s life cycle. Led by renowned faculty from the Law School and experienced practitioners, the program will focus not just on the theory and doctrine underlying those areas of business and corporate law, but pair the theory with practice.

Through this interactive program, you will be introduced to several areas of corporate law theory and legal practice, including*:

  • entrepreneurship and early-stage capital investment;
  • corporate governance and advice,
  • mergers and acquisitions, and
  • corporate restructuring and reorganization.
