Business Basics for Lawyers

This one-credit course offers students who have little or no background in business a quick introduction to the vocabulary and selected principles of business so that students will be better able to understand and communicate with business clients or clients who interact with businesses. The course is self-contained and is delivered by Ross School of Business faculty from accounting, finance, marketing and economics over two days just prior to the start of the Winter term. Students need no prior experience with business. Those who wish to learn more about business can continue their studies at Michigan Law by taking the more advanced business courses in the " . . . for lawyers" series, such as Accounting for Lawyers and Finance for Lawyers. Conversely, students who already have considerable business background or who have taken two or more courses in the " . . . for lawyers" series should not take this course.
