Professor Karl Okamoto and six law students are capping a semester-long Transactional Lawyering class with a trip to Beijing, China.

Okamoto will lead a Transactional Lawyering Boot Camp at Renmin University Law School, in which the Kline students and 17 Chinese law students will participate. During the boot camp from May 13 to 18, students will work in teams drafting and negotiating the terms of a hypothetical acquisition by a Chinese private equity investor of a U.S. software company.

The trip includes a visit at two of the leading law firms based in Beijing, which will provide additional insights about transactional practice in China.
