    This program will examine the role of finance in business transactions from various perspectives with the goal of inspiring more deliberate consideration of finance in law school teaching and legal scholarship. From structured finance to real estate, from mergers and acquisitions to capital markets, finance plays an important and fundamental role in transactional law. The intersection of transactional law and finance is dynamic, providing academics, practitioners, and the judiciary with both challenges and opportunities. First, a panel will focus discuss financial literacy pedagogy, which may include teaching methods, teaching business and finance basics joint degree programs; learning how to communicate with business/finance people, small group work, and courses with non-law students (such as courses with business school students). The second part of the program will consist of scholarly presentations selected from a Call for Papers.
