Accounting Basics and Refreshers for Attorneys is brought to you by Lorman
Gain a refresher on basic accounting knowledge necessary for practicing law.
Becoming an attorney or even a paralegal requires many years of education and on-the-job training. And while it is a goal for many attorneys to own their own law firm someday, law school really doesn’t teach you much about finance or basics in accounting. Every business owner needs accounting, and most of the time, this is outsourced to a bookkeeper or accounting firm. Yet when financial statements are submitted, many people feel lost on how to understand them, or sometimes even a little embarrassed that they don’t know what they are looking at. The goal of this course is to educate you on accounting software packages and what they can do. Gain a general understanding of some accounting fundamentals, refresh your knowledge on financial statements and dive into how to read and understand them.
