This paper considers the benefits of teaching corporations law from a transactional perspective and through the use of experiential techniques; namely, using such techniques to examine corporations law and its application and relevance to business transactions. Drawing on the extensive literature in this area, particularly by scholars in the United States, and also his experience in teaching transactional law subjects, the writer suggests ways in which the transactional aspects of corporations law could be strengthened within the law school curriculum in Australia and identifies experiential techniques for this purpose. These include client-based problems, client interviews, drafting and negotiation simulations and facilitated reflection.
