The National Transactional LawMeet is designed to give law students a hands-on experience in developing and honing transactional lawyering skills, providing each participant a meaningful and engaging simulation of transactional practice. The Transactional LawMeet involves three distinct phases:

1. Students work in teams and prepare a proposed draft agreement based on a fact scenario provided by the Transactional LawMeet.
2. Each team writes mark-ups to draft agreements prepared by the opposing teams they will encounter during the Regional Rounds.
3. Opposing teams negotiate the contours of the deal. Each team will represent one of the two parties to the transaction.

This year the law school will send one team (consisting of 3 students) to the competition. The team will be mentored by Prof. Nili as well as transactional practitioners from Madison. The preparation for the competition will start in the fall, with the majority of the work expected during winter break and the spring semester.

Participation in the competition is for 2 credits in the spring semester (pass/fail).
