Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2015-2016.

This seminar explores how bank loans are used by businesses to finance acquisitions, growth and working capital needs.  A significant amount of time will be spent learning how to analyze and draft credit and security documents, and how specific contract provisions are employed to advance the business objectives of both borrowers and lenders.  We will explore the fundamental differences between bank loans and debt securities, and the ways in which the markets for these two kinds of investments are converging.  A particular area of focus will be how three areas of substantive law - secured transactions law, bankruptcy law and corporate law - come into play in the structuring and documenting of a typical secured bank loan.  We will also examine some of the legal and economic issues that arise when bank loans need to be restructured.
