Moot court for transactional law
Posted by Erik Gerding

Business law professors can learn a lot about teaching from our colleagues in trial practice. Last week, I mentioned how Therese Maynard (Loyola-LA) has developed a Business Planning simulation course for over 60 students. She uses practitioners as co-teachers using Trial Practice courses as a model for the course.

Karl Okamoto (Drexel) is also borrowing from litigation courses. Drexel is hosting the first "Transactional Lawyering Meet" for law students on March 4-5, 2010. Here is a link to what looks like a promising adaption of moot court to transactional law. I think some of the Glom bloggers will judging alongside with practitioners.  I'm looking forward to seeing what the students can do and taking some ideas back to New Mexico.

Karl also has some stimulating ideas about creating a NITA like organization to train transactional lawyers. I'm sure some of the Glom bloggers will be following up on Karl's ideas after a conference at Drexel on the subject.
