Business and Corporate Law Research • Et. Seq: The Harvard Law School Library Blog

Galvanized by the day’s headlines to learn ACCOUNTING and FINANCE principles . . .

The Law School is making available two online courses from the Harvard Business School, one on accounting and the other on finance. These courses are a pre-matriculation requirement for all incoming MBA students at the Harvard Business School. Each course takes approximately 10 hours to complete.

For more information on these courses and registration details, follow the MONEY.

After completing these courses, you will be able to impress your friends and family with casual talk about such things as “off balance sheet activity” and “working capital ratio.”

Corporate Governance Junkies Take Note

The Harvard Law School Corporate Governance Blog, which is sponsored by the Harvard Law School Program on Corporate Governance, provides updates on Corporate Governance working papers, seminars, speakers, and other activities.

Download content on emerging corporate governance issues; examples from this week include: (1) An essay by Professor Howell Jackson entitled A Pragmatic Approach to the Phased Consolidation of Financial Regulation in the United States; (2) a video lecture on Who’s to Blame When a Deal Falls Through; and (3) a law firm memorandum on Underfunded Defined Benefit Pension Plans.

Seriously, if you are way into corporate governance (or thinking about getting into corporate governance issues), do not let a week go by without checking in with the HLS Corporate Governance Blog!
