For legal professionals

Mini MBA

Financial acumen for legal professionals.

“The business of America is business” – Calvin Coolidge, 30th U.S. President

Those words have held true since Calvin Coolidge first said them in 1925. And that means that business has, and always will, play a major part in the U.S. legal system. And it’s part of the reason why more and more firms are paying particular attention to not only business law, but business systems. Systems like finance and accounting, and how those systems play out in the courtrooms of America. That’s why our Mini MBA can be such a major part of your firm’s infrastructure.

A solid foundation of the legal/business relationship.

The six-part Mini MBA financial series offers legal professionals across all areas of your firm an overview of finance and accounting, relating these business concepts to a broad spectrum of practice areas. From exploring basic elements and principles of accounting to more intricate and advanced financial concepts, the course progresses to give your firm a working understanding of business as it applies to the law. It’s an invaluable edge in today’s ever-expanding business climate.

Each segment is focused on a particular topic and can be taken as a stand-alone course with no prerequisite. However, they’re designed as a progressive system in terms of difficulty, from basic to advanced. That makes them perfectly customizable, so each staff member can opt-in at their own level of understanding and still gain invaluable knowledge, regardless of the number of courses taken.
