most useful 1L law school courses for transactional lawyer?

Postby mjitbswyd » Fri May 27, 2011 4:23 am

My law school told me that I can choose 2 1L courses that I don't have to take (I’m a transferred llm). Meaning that I only have to take 1 among Tort, Contract and Property (I’ve already picked Civil Procedure, Criminal and Con law). Could anyone tell me which one of the three is the most (or least) useful for a transactional lawyer (likely in M&A or finance)? Thanks!

edit: misread the question. Cut me some slack. It's early.

Contract probably, but it's a little like asking which course is most important for a surgeon: French, Geography or Algebra.
