Course Outline: Mergers and Acquisitions: This course considers the economic and legal aspects of mergers and acquisitions. The course is roughly divided into three parts. The first part considers the problem of mergers and acquisitions through the lens of modern economic theory. This portion of the course addresses the value that business combinations create for society and asks why acquirers typically pay substantial premiums to purchase established companies. The second part of the course addresses the legal rules applicable to takeover defense and asks whether the law is a fair reflection of the economic conclusions drawn from the first part of the course. The third part of the course considers the federal securities laws applicable to mergers and acquisitions, principally Sections 13 and 14 of the Securities Exchange Act.
