The Basics of Acquisition Agreements
Time: 3:30 pm
Location: Room 140, Earle Mack School of Law
Much of the course content is interactive, which Okamoto noted distinguishes it from most MOOCs, which typically rely on “talking head” professors delivering lectures. The course begins with video lectures by Okamoto and faculty from DLA Piper and law schools at UC-Davis, UCLA and Cornell University and then requires students to watch a video of a hypothetical client asking questions about an acquisition agreement. Next, the students post videos of themselves in the role of a lawyer answering the “client’s” specific questions.
