REMINDER: Transactional LawMeet Information Meeting WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 10th in ROOM 211

If you are seriously considering a transactional practice, the Transactional LawMeet competition is an excellent opportunity to challenge and distinguish yourself and to get a real sense of how transactional practitioners resolve difficult business problems through contract negotiation and drafting.  Don’t miss the Informational Meeting on September 10th!!

BU Law’s  Transactional Law Program spearheads the School’s participation in the National Transactional LawMeet sponsored by the Earle Mack School of Law at Drexel University and others.   This is the premier transactional competition in the country and attracts participants from most top law schools.  This is the fourth year that BUSL will participate.

An “internal” competition will be held at BUSL this fall to select a team to represent BUSL at the New England Regional Meet, at which participants for the National LawMeet  will be chosen.  An Informational Meeting describing the competitions will be held on Wednesday, September 10th,  at 1:00 p.m. in Room 211.  Professor Kent Coit, Director of the Transactional Law Program, will present an overview of the competitions and will answer questions.
