Instructor(s) Lipson, Jonathan

Transactional Skills Workshop:This simulation course
immerses students in a series of real-life transactions organized around the formation and early life of a high-tech startup.  Students role-play as lawyers and clients for the three principal actors in a fairly typical deal: the entrepreneurs, their former employer and their investor.  Students will work in teams on many of the important elements of these transactions, including negotiating and documenting corporate charters, bylaws, technology licenses, stock purchase agreements, employment agreements, and so on.  Prerequisites: Business Organizations I.  It is limited to 12 students and satisfies the upper-level writing requirement.  Please contact Professor Lipson (jlipson@wisc.edu) if you have questions about the Workshop.
