Corporate finance, understood narrowly, describes the instruments, institutions,
and markets through which private firms make financial decisions. But the financial and
economic concepts covered in this course apply broadly to non-profits, individuals and
households, and public entities.

This course covers financial concepts that are essential to
the practice of business law and other areas of law that intersect with
financial decision making, private or public. The course begins with an introduction to
business organizations, financial markets, and financial statement analysis. It then turns
to financial decision-making, starting with the time value of money and the fundamental
role played by interest rates in financial decisions over time. It concludes with project and
firm valuation, risk and return in the capital markets, and the financial (capital) structure
of firms.

About half of the classes will consist of lecture and problem-solving sessions that introduce the major concepts. The other half will consist of case studies--based on actual events--that illustrate financial decision making in practice. Students will make extensive use of Microsoft Excel, but no background in Excel is presumed or required and the relevant skills in Excel will be taught.
