Law and Risk Management

QST LA 450

Due to the financial crisis of 2008, the industry has re-aligned its business models to a risk-based approach for products and services. In response to this paradigm shift, Advanced Business Law, now known as Law and Risk Management, will focus on the identification, assessment, and management of operational and regulatory risk in the context of the law. Topics covered will continue to include contract risk, commercial financing, the Uniform Commercial Code, agency liability, bankruptcy, products liability, and real estate. The class will emphasize legal issues as a component of effective strategic business planning with a particular emphasis on duties and liabilities for corporate accounting. Group work includes contract drafting, interpretation, and negotiation. This course in part supplements many of the legal issues central to the accounting concentration and addresses many of the topics on the Regulation section of the CPA Exam.
