Clients today more than ever demand that their attorney understand their business. We are increasingly not only lawyers but counselors to our clients. This course surveys an annual report of a prominent public company—Target Corporation—to explore the business of the entity from multiple perspectives, including accounting, corporate finance, marketing, operations, and strategy. In doing so, you learn both business jargon and concepts your clients learned in the top business schools. Understanding “business speak” is a key to being valued as a business lawyer who makes—not breaks—deals and business for one’s client. This course seeks to arm attorneys with the skills they need to compete successfully on the business playing field.
