LAW 6051

Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2017-2018.

Business issues, particularly those relating to corporations, are a given in most areas of practice. This course will introduce students to online resources providing company information and will enable them to evaluate the information in order to determine whether the resource is the most appropriate for their research. Students will learn how to find what the company says about itself (required filings, annual statements, web pages, press releases), what regulators say about the company (legal and administrative actions, regulations), and what third parties have to say (analysts, ratings services, directories, news and journal articles). Classes are short lectures followed by online sessions using business databases. There are assigned readings in lieu of a required textbook, five assignments, and a short due diligence report on a company of the student's choice. There is no final exam.

When Offered Spring.

Prerequisites/Corequisites Prerequisite: Lawyering or Advanced Legal Research: US Legal Research for LLMs.
