The School of Law’s first Transactional Law Competition will be held on September 27. Competitor teams will consist of two or three students who will work cooperatively to resolve a transactional law problem, which was adapted from a real life fact pattern.
Two weeks before the competition, student teams were given the problem, allowing them to create proposals that they believe best handles the issues in the problem. During the competition, these teams will advocate for their proposals. The competition will consist of three rounds, each lasting an hour.
The University of Missouri School of Law’s Board of Advocates and the Tax Law Society created the Transactional Law Competition to provide students an opportunity to develop transactional law skills through practical experience.
