Indiana Law students can build their own plan of study by taking classes from a number of different areas, or they can choose an area of focus.
Description This course focuses on the diverse array of legal issues that surround the formation, operation, governance, and financing of a business enterprise. Course readings touch on several substantives areas of law, including corporate, tax, and securities law, as well as basic accounting, business finance, and business strategy. The course will also highlight the relationship between the business client and counsel and attendant issues of professional responsibility. A substantial portion of the student#s grade will be based on a semester-long business planning problem that follows a hypothetical client through the formation and growth of his business. Using the tools and background information covered in the reading, students will analyze the client#s legal needs and draft appropriate memorandum, legal opinions, and transactional documents. Working on the problem may involve group exercises. However, the course grade is based upon individual class participation and a student's written work product. The course is designed to be complete on the last day of the semester; this course has no final exam. Business Planning can be used to satisfy the advanced writing requirement. Prerequisites: Corporations (B653), Introduction to Income Tax (B650); upon instructor approval, one of these courses may be taken concurrently. Enrollment is limited to 20 students. The class will meet regularly for twice per week, but additional meetings outside of designated class meeting times may be required.
Note This course satisfies the professional skills requirement and may offer writing credit.
