Boston University School of Law is seeking to hire a part-time lecturer to co-teach a class to its internationally trained LLM students during the spring 2020 semester: International Mergers and Acquisitions . The four-credit class would meet twice a week for two hours. Classroom hours and responsibilities would be determined by and coordinated with the lead lecturer for the class.
International Mergers & Acquisitions
This course will give students a detailed introduction to the knowledge and skills necessary for an international M&A lawyer to guide clients through a typical cross-border M&A transaction. The course will have two distinct parts: (1) a deep dive into the key M&A contractual language (and underlying theories) that get negotiated in most transactions (including purchase price adjustments, indemnities, covenants, representations and warranties, and other key terms) and (2) navigating through each step in the deal process (including initial term sheet negotiations, due diligence, regulatory and third-party approvals, definitive agreement negotiations, closing mechanics, and other key steps). There will be an emphasis on underlying business principles that are common across different jurisdictions (e.g. U.S., U.K/Australia, EU/civil law countries, Africa, India, China, Japan, Asia-Pacific and other jurisdictions). Students will engage in case study hypotheticals involving real-life deals, which will be used to demonstrate the strengths and weakness of common strategies employed by law firm, in-house and other transactional lawyers.
A JD degree, corporate transactional (M&A) experience, and interest in teaching international, non-native English speaking students is required. Prior law school teaching experience is strongly preferred.
Applicants should email a letter of interest and a resume to the Graduate and International Programs Office at Boston University School of Law, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
