About the Competition
The Transactional Competition seeks to expose law students to the core competencies of the corporate and regulatory practice of health care law. Students will be challenged to apply corporate lawyering skills by providing legal advice on a potential business opportunity to a hypothetical health care client. Three-person teams of J.D. students will prepare a legal memorandum that summarizes their legal and business advice for the client. Students will then appear in a boardroom environment before distinguished attorneys and health care executives serving as the client’s “Executive Management Team” to present their analysis of the client’s position and recommendations on how the client should proceed.
