Course Number:

Credit Hours:
3 Credit Hours

Prerequisites: RCC.* Three major trends in the health care industry are consolidation of providers, providers establishing relationships with other providers to coordinate care, and providers developing non-clinical revenue. The purpose of this course is to expose students to the types of healthcare transactions associated with these trends. Students will learn how to structure transactions, draft and negotiate transaction agreements, and conduct the due diligence necessary to carry out these transactions. The course is intended to be highly interactive and team-oriented, two characteristics that exemplify a transactional legal practice. A variety of law firm partners, associates and in-house counsel will join the class to discuss health care transactions and their roles in them. The course will require multiple writing assignments and the grade will be based on these (75%) and class participation (25%). Satisfies third semester writing requirement.
