Analytical Methods for Lawyers
Analytical Methods for Lawyers is a skills-based course to help improve your decision-making and client advising skills. A major role of being an attorney is making decisions for yourself, for your firm, and in conjunction with your clients on client matters. Sometimes the decision is strategic, sometimes financial, sometimes policy based. Should we accept or reject a case? Should we settle a case (and for what amount)? Should our client merge with another company? Which of two approaches to a problem should our client take? What accounting or financial information do we need to make a decision (and how do we use the information once we have it)?
“Analytical Methods for Lawyers” is a problem-based course geared toward students without a background in accounting, finance, or analytical methods. There are numbers and math involved in the course, but the casebook is geared towards students who have not had any business or economics courses, and who know they need an introduction to business concepts and terms. The “casebook” by the way incorporates no court cases.
