My Fantasy Curriculum and Other Almost Random Points


Tina L. Stark

Emory Law and Economics Research Paper No. 08-29

Abstract:     
This article contains the opening remarks of Professor Tina Stark at Emory Law's Conference on Teaching Drafting and Transactional Skills: The Basics and Beyond. In her remarks, she describes a fantasy transactional curriculum that would cover both doctrinal material and skills. The curriculum would be integrated with each succeeding course building on the ones before it. The curriculum would begin in the first year with an enriched contracts course. Among other things, the course would be taught in the context of a transaction that students would see develop over the course of the semester.

In the second year, students would take two business courses, addressing many students' virtual total lack of knowledge about the business world. The first would be a revamped, three-credit accounting course that would focus on the accounting concepts and principles and the context in which lawyers use them in practice. The second course would teach students the basics about business and the business world. The more traditional skills courses would also begin in the second year when students would be required to take contract drafting and a deal skills course. The latter course would focus on skills unique to transactional practice. The curriculum would conclude in the third year with a wide variety of capstone simulation courses, each course dealing with a different transaction.
