Law 851 Syllabus

Welcome to Accounting for Lawyers. Because of the solar eclipse, I have rescheduled the first class to 2:30 on Monday, August 21st, instead of 9:30 on Monday, August 21st. We will meet in room 105 for the makeup class.

This course is designed for law students who have no training in accounting. If you have taken a college course in accounting, please see me before school begins as this class is probably not for you.

For the first day of class, please read the following from the Bradford textbook:

  1. Pages v-xi; and 
  2. Chapters 1 and 2 (the chapters are quite short; these two chapters total 6.5 pages). 

Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions.
