This course is intended for students in their second or third years at the School of Law. Although not a requirement to register for the course, it would be ideal for students taking the course to have completed the basic Oil and Gas Law course. Students taking the course will also likely find it helpful to have completed the Business Associations and Federal Income Taxation courses.

This course will offer students detailed practical exposure to the manner in which complex acquisition and disposition (“A&D”) transactions are structured, documented, and consummated. Since the instructor’s practice has focused, for 43 years, on energy-related transactions, the template transaction for the course will be the sale of a substantial package of upstream oil and gas assets. During the 14 class sessions, we will cover topics such as the following: basic contract drafting principles, careful identification of sellers and buyers, transaction structure, confidentiality agreements, letters of intent, and the structure and terms of an asset purchase and sale agreement.
