The Second Edition continues the tradition & leadership in the field which its earliest predecessor, the first casebook on accounting for lawyers, pioneered fifty years ago. Many students approach accounting with considerable trepidation. The Second Edition also adopts a "learn by doing" approach. The Teacher's Manual provides answers to all the problems in the casebook. Because the casebook contains alternative problems in every chapter, professors can rotate problems from year to year. The Teacher's Manual also contains additional problems & other materials not included in the casebook, references to accounting promulgations, & four sample syllabi. The syllabi contain suggestions for one, two & three credit-hour basic courses for law students with no accounting background & a two credit-hour advanced course.

The concise version of the most widely adopted text in the field continues to respond to a demand for a briefer, less detailed casebook that introduces novices to how accounting issues frequently arise in the practice of law. Designed specifically for one- and two-credit hour courses for law students with no accounting background, the text of the Concise Fifth Edition is more than forty percent shorter than the Fifth Edition, so students will find this text less expensive and easier to master. The Concise Fifth Edition offers a broad overview of the field, which its earliest predecessor, the first casebook on accounting law for students, pioneered almost 70 years ago. The first section of each chapter, entitled "Importance to Lawyers," explains how accounting concepts and financial statements affect legal issues. Like the Fifth edition, the Concise Fifth Edition uses a "learn by doing" approach, including: Illustrative financial statements from Starbucks Corporation Multiple problems using the financial statements from Amazon.com, Inc., Google Inc., and United Parcel Service, Inc. To assist instructors, a companion site supplements the text with an electronic version of the teacher's manual, PowerPoint slides, chapter outlines, and sample exams.
