COURSE OVERVIEW

An astute lawyer understands that his/ her service is generally perceived as a cost to a client/business even though it helps the client/business avoid any potential “legal pitfalls”

As law firms and in-House counsels work closely with corporations and internal stake-holders, lawyers with good financial acumen gain a better understanding of the business and can address corporate legal issues by taking a business’s financial position into consideration. It is therefore vital for lawyers to develop Financial / Business Acumen (or the ability to understand financial statements).

ALB Business and Practical Finance For Legal Professionals teaches key financial knowledge and techniques in an easy to understand manner. It provides you with a clear grasp of daily financial issues facing both internal and external clients. Through practical examples, this Masterclass will arm you a higher degree of financial/business literacy so that you can provide legal advice that can effectively assist in the meeting of business objectives.
