The Law & Entrepreneurship Society will be hosting its first-annual Transactional Law Competition. Designed to be the transactional equivalent to Moot Court and Mock Trial, the competition will give students hands-on experience with drafting for and negotiating a deal. Competitors will be asked to help a hypothetical start-up client or its potential venture capital firm to prepare an agreement, mark up the opposing side's proposal, and then negotiate its terms with the other side. Judges will be drawn from the ranks of Duke Law alumni with experience in venture capital investing and advising start-ups. The competition will be followed by a brief awards ceremony and a networking reception with refreshments and an opportunity to meet with the judges. For more information, contact L&E Society Vice President Adam Berkland at firstname.lastname@example.org.
