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 JD 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.
Mitchell Hamline is looking to form a team for 2021. The team will be coached by a sub ject matters experts at Fredrkson & Byron. This would be a 2-credit registration in the spring 2021 semester. Not every member of the three-person team needs health law experience. Some members may have business or business law experience. Note that the competition runs January to March.
If you are interested, please contact Professor Pope. While registration for spring 2021 is not until October, we want to start forming a team now.
