1h 2m

Created on April 11, 2017



As an attorney, you are probably not expected to know the difference between owner's equity and retained earnings - that is the job of an accountant. What you should know -  for your benefit, as well as your client's - are what the balance sheet is and does and certain legalities behind the instrument.

In this program, led by attorney Dr. Bart Basi, broad concepts and finer points will be discussed. 

Learning Objectives: 
  1. Identify items on a balance sheet
  2. Understand what the numbers represent
  3. Discuss with clients potential legal problems
  4. Conduct a simple ratio analysis and explain it to a client
