Instructor(s) Alderman, Kimberly
This course will introduce students to the legal and ethical issues involved in representing clients in the civil context, with an emphasis on transactional work. Via simulated art transactions, students will represent clients through the arc of an attorney-client relationship -- from being retained to closing the client file and sending a final bill. In the course of representation, students will advise their clients on transactions, research and resolve pertinent legal and ethical issues, and draft documents. Students will develop skills critical to the effective and ethical practice of law and, in the process, develop a broad understanding of art law.
