This class will include both academic introductions to technology law and hands-on, practical exercises that will accustom students to typical work handled by (or for) in-house counsel at technology companies. Areas of focus include: (1) Intellectual property principles and clauses arising in technology transactions, (2) Types of licensing and commercial agreements common in technology, (3) Drafting and negotiating technology agreements with a focus on key terms and conditions, (4) Mergers & acquisitions (an introduction and basics), and (5) Privacy, cybersecurity, social media, and other current topics in technology law.
Class instruction will involve: (1) analysis and discussion of intellectual property and commercial case law, (2) analysis and discussion of example agreements, and (3) workshop exercises involving drafting and negotiating documents underlying technology transactions.
A primary goal of this class is to expand the substantive business and legal knowledge of the students while providing practical deal-making skills easily transferrable to attorneys who support technology companies.
