Course Description

Corporate finance is an interdisciplinary study of corporate law that deals specifically with financing the corporate enterprise and the legal rights and economic benefits embedded in a company’s financial instruments and governing documents. This is an introductory course that combines basic economics, accounting, and finance to examine the nature of capital companies utilize to service their financing needs, and other core business concepts needed to better understand the law and its applications in a sophisticated practice. Topics include agency cost, risk and return, valuation, financial statement analysis, capital markets, mergers and acquisitions, and corporate governance. Some basic math is required, but the course will focus more on understanding numbers to effectively advise clients on critical business decisions, and less on complex formulas and calculations.
