Description:

Accounting and finance cannot be taught through the dense text and formattypical of legal casebooks. Mirroring textbooks used at business schools withsignificant quantities of visuals, Essential Concepts of Business forLawyers uses many graphical elements, including pictures, charts,diagrams, and tables. Engaging hypotheticals are fun and engaging, but theyalso illustrate the application of important concepts in business situations.At the end of every chapter, there are three forms of review and summary:Essential Terms, Key Concepts, and Review Questions. The text uses manyexamples, specially set in example boxes, to illustrate and reinforcedifficult concepts. Completely up to the minute, the book features material onimportant, recent events such as the financial crisis of 2008-2009, thecollapse of investment banks, the Bernie Madoff fraud case, and Enron. Whilethis book is not a casebook, it includes edited appellate cases at the end ofevery chapter. These cases provide essential contextualization, illustratingthe legal application of the business concepts presented, and make moreconcrete the lawyer’s need to understand business. This makesEssential Concepts of Business for Lawyers unique among available books,as the cases connect the unfamiliar (business concepts) with the familiar(case law). Flexibility makes it stand out as well. It can be easily used as aprimary text in an independent course on essential business concepts and isthe only single book that adequately serves this function. Additionally, thisbook can be used as a required or recommended supplement in doctrinal businesslaw courses such as business associations, securities regulations, corporatefinance, taxation, banking law, financial regulation, and business planning. ATeacher’s Manual accompanies with PowerPoint slides.Features of Essential Concepts of Business for Lawyers:• Significant use of visuals and graphics.o avoids the dense text and format typical of legal casebookso mirrors accounting and finance textbooks for business schools, withessential visual aids pictures charts diagrams tables• Engaging hypotheticals fun and interesting to consider illustrate the application of important concepts in business situations• End of chapter reviews summarize the basic points Essential Terms Key Concepts Review Questions typically seen in accounting and finance textbooks used in business schools• Example boxes.o illustrate and reinforce difficult concepts• Highly current materials on recent eventso the financial crisis of 2008-2009o the collapse of investment bankso the Bernie Madoff fraud caseo Enron• Case applications
