Negotiating Business Transactions: An Extended Simulation Course

I read the materials in Negotiating Business Transactions: An Extended Simulation Course …I found the topics you and Professor Bradlow covered in this work — especially in Chapter 3 (Role of Lawyer in a Business Transaction), Chapter 6 (The Process of Negotiation) and Chapter 9 (Psychology of Negotiations) — to be very relevant and useful for our [Women’s Committee at the Asian American Bar Association of New York (AABANY)]workshop and … our package of CLE materials.  

--Marianne Chow, In-House Counsel

The only offering of its kind, Negotiating Business Transactions: An Extended Simulation Course contains facts and contextual materials, negotiating instructions for each side, and background readings on all aspects of the transaction. The text is an introduction to both negotiations and transactional legal practice, and meets the ABA practical skills requirements. By bringing a business deal into the classroom, the text helps students study objectives, structures, and strategies and learn by doing in a setting where mistakes become lessons―not malpractice. The text enables students to develop negotiating and drafting skills as they experience the “real time” challenges of negotiating deals. Students explore the interaction between business and legal issues in the context of structuring those deals. Then, they can apply what they have learned to produce a solution that meets the client’s objectives and is acceptable to the counterparty. Finally, by understanding the social and environmental impacts of business transactions, students can more fully explore issues of professional responsibility in negotiations. Student response has been consistently and overwhelmingly positive. A complete Teacher’s Manual, developed from experience teaching the course, includes syllabus, alternative class formats, sample lecture outlines for issues raised by the simulation, sample PowerPoint slides, and debriefing issues.
