The first module of this course will take you step-by- step through the loan documents including written offers, administrative provisions, representations, ovenants, default, due diligence and different kinds of financial support. The course will look at these issues from the perspective of English law and will include a comparison between the wording of English and US loan agreements. The second module will build on the first, with more opportunities to apply the topics covered in practice. It will also deal with some more difficult issues such as cross-border and intercreditor issues, contractual alternatives to guarantees and a comparison between corporate, asset, and project based loan agreements. The course will consist of a series of lectures and workshops that will provide you with a practical insight into dealing with the documentation of loans. By the end of the course you will be thoroughly familiar with the most important aspects of loan documentation.
