Information is the currency of modern business. Helping clients protect their information is one of a lawyer’s most important functions. Confidentiality issues arise for companies and their lawyers in all areas of business — when key employees come and go, when one company seeks to buy or merge with another, and when forming (and ending) key business relationships, such as with suppliers or subcontractors. This course will be of interest to students who hope to counsel corporate clients (whether as in-house counsel or outside law-firm counsel), whether their practice focuses on corporate transactions, litigation, labor/employment, and/or intellectual property. Coursework will include class discussion of responses to real-life business scenarios.
