Accounting for Lawyers, Concise

Mathew J. Barrett

New book purchase includes complimentary digital access to the eBook.Now in a sixth edition, the concise version continues to respond to the demand for a briefer, less detailed casebook that introduces novices to how accounting issues frequently arise both in transactional work and litigation. Designed specifically for one- and two-credit hour courses for law students with no accounting background, the text of the Concise Sixth Edition is more than a third shorter than the Sixth Edition, so students will find this text less expensive and easier to master.The Concise Sixth Edition incorporates numerous developments since the Fifth Edition, most significantly discussions about the new generally accepted accounting principles governing revenue recognition, lease accounting, and credit losses. Often collectively referred to as "new GAAP," these rules mark the most significant changes to financial accounting in at least a generation. The Concise Sixth Edition also identifies and discusses various financial accounting issues that lawyers should keep in mind during the pandemic and its aftermath.The first section of each chapter, entitled "Importance to Lawyers," explains how accounting concepts and financial statements affect legal issues. The text empowers students:To work backwards through the bookkeeping process and, when necessary, to trace an amount that appears on the financial statements through the accounting records to the ledgers, journals, and supporting documentation;To negotiate agreements or other legal documents containing accounting terminology or concepts;To recognize "red flags" that suggest financial difficulties--or even financial fraud; andTo understand--and, when necessary, defend against--the opportunities to obtain accounting-related information about an underlying lawsuit and then to use that information during litigation.Like its predecessor, the Concise Sixth Edition uses a "learn by doing" approach, including:Illustrative financial statements from Starbucks CorporationMultiple problems using the financial statements from Amazon.com, Inc., Google Inc., and United Parcel Service, Inc.

Family Law in a Nutshell

John E.B. Myers

Few areas of law practice cover as many issues as family law. The subject embraces marriage and divorce, annulment, custody of children, spousal and child support, complex property issues, paternity, domestic violence, adoption, and alternative means of reproduction. Each of these topics itself is complex. For example, within the broad subject of child custody lie the issues of interstate move away cases, international parental child abduction, and the impact of domestic violence on a parent's right to custody or visitation. In addition to purely legal issues, family law has a large psychological component, touching on some of the most important and sensitive aspects of human nature and interaction, such as, what is a family, what are the rights and responsibilities of parents toward children, and how should society respond to child abuse and domestic violence? All of these issues, and more, are discussed in this Nutshell. The book provides a thorough introduction to this challenging field of practice. As you prepare for the bar examination, check to see if family law is tested on the bar you intend to take. The Uniform Bar Exam tests family law. A number of state bar exams include family law. This book covers the family law topics you will encounter on the bar and in a family law course.
