This course is intended to provide practical experience in drafting and negotiating technology agreements in the international business setting. Lectures will focus on the business and legal issues raised in a technology-based transaction. In Fall/Winter section, certain class sessions will take place by videoconference with a class of law students at the University of Tokyo, and the heart of the course will be team negotiation and drafting of an agreement with counterpart teams of Japanese law students, using email and videoconferencing. It is anticipated a section will be offered Winter/Spring in cooperation with a European law school, which include negotiations with European law students. The analysis, negotiation and drafting will mirror a commercially realistic business transaction with a technology component. The course is designed for J.D. and LL.M. students.
