Course Description:

NOTE: This course is part of the Law School’s Law & Business Program and assumes basic knowledge of accounting and corporate finance.

There are many different ways a corporation can raise capital from investors, and this course examines issues that arise from relying on a financing choice other than common stock. The principal focus will be on debt, preferred stock (including venture capital preferred stock), and convertible securities. Time permitting, we will also examine more exotic transactions, including asset securitization (including collateral debt obligations) and credit default swaps. A large part of the course will be devoted to analyzing transactional documents, including indenture and preferred stock agreement, and discussing relevant case law. Relevant accounting and finance issues will also be discussed.
