LAW 200 - Accounting and Finance for Lawyers.


This course studies “generally accepted accounting principles” and how they bear upon legal problems, as well as basic principles of corporate and personal finance. Introductory material on the record-keeping process, the form and preparation of financial statements, and an analysis of major problem areas (e.g., revenue recognition, inventory accounting, depreciation, accounting for both debt instruments and corporate capital) is followed by analysis of actual public company financial statements. The financial component of the course studies sources of capital, debt instruments, and deal structures. The course concludes with personal finance for professionals. Published corporate financial reports, opinions of the Accounting Principles Board of the American Institute of CPA’s, and accounting series releases of the SEC are used as the basic accounting materials for analysis. Absent advance instructor permission, this course is not open to students who have received credit for more than one college course in accounting. Three hours. Alessi
