This survey course is designed to introduce the concepts and principles of accounting as they interrelate with the practice of general business law. The course is geared especially to the law student who does not have a business, accounting or finance background. We will focus on the following general topics: basic accounting conventions; the role and responsibilities of the independent auditor; the financial statements themselves (balance sheets, income statements, retained earning statements, cash flow statements); interpreting and analyzing financial statements; what the statements do and don't tell, and how information might be misleading. The goal is to provide you with the tools to enable you to analyze and evaluate the financial statements of a company, understand the various components that make up these statements, and appreciate the quality and quantity of information that they can convey to a critical reader.
