An Innovative Business Law Experience
The Business Law Boot Camp is an intensive intersession course held between the spring and summer quarters at Baylor Law. Specifically created for Baylor Law students interested in business transactions, the week-long course offers a practical perspective on multiple aspects of business and its legal requirements and implications. Course material includes forming a business, commercial borrowing, raising capital, trademark and advertising issues, succession planning, selling a business, basic accounting, contract drafting, and negotiation skills.
More Than Just Course Study
The content of the course is delivered through both classroom lectures and interactive exercises. Students also take part in special networking events and supplemental opportunities for professional development and mentoring throughout the duration of the course. Throughout the course, influential and inspiring guest speakers share insights and advice with respect to building professional relationships and achieving success as well as the ethical practice of transactional law.
Taught each year by a team of adjunct professors who are well-established, highly regarded transactional lawyers from practices across the country, the Business Law Boot Camp offers students the benefit of learning from and interacting with some of the best lawyers in the practice of transactional law. These lawyers also see first-hand Baylor Law's commitment to training practice-ready lawyers in the transactional area.
“The Baylor Law Business Law Boot Camp was an invaluable experience. The weeklong program was a crash course of business law essentials presented by phenomenal and passionate attorneys from across Texas. The Boot Camp provided opportunities to network, hear raw stories from private practice, and obtain personalized advice. I am grateful for the lessons I learned from this unique program that will help me begin my legal career with knowledge from experienced professionals.”

“Once again, I was impressed by the students' focus at the end of an intensive week, as well as by the smart questions they asked during the M&A discussion. I hope many of these young people will pursue careers as transactional lawyers as a result of Professor Miller's Boot Camp.”
