In a small-group setting, Haddock taught students to work through an LLC Formation Agreement, an Operating Agreement, and an Employment Agreement based on a recent transaction in which he served as counsel. The students learned about the structure of the model transaction, the drafting considerations, and how the documents worked when presented with a hypothetical post-closing products liability suit.

Law students Brandon Bieker, Ben Busboom, Michael Fowler, Aaron Friess, Matthew McGivern, Matthew Mullen, Matthew Sullard, Laura Taylor, and Amanda Walker, all of whom are pursuing the Business and Transactional Law Certificate, were selected to attend the lunch, and received the benefit of Haddock’s experience. Professor Amy Deen Westbrook, Kurt M. Sager Memorial Distinguished Professor of International and Commercial Law, and Director of the Business and Transactional Law Center, also helped provide instruction.

The mixture of intensive instruction on the business and drafting of such agreements with the informal lunchtime setting provided an excellent opportunity for students to learn from one of Washburn Law’s most talented alumni.
