Business Law Curriculum at Yale

Business Law Courses

The course offerings in business law at Yale are wide-ranging and interdisciplinary. In addition to developing familiarity with the institutional landscape covered in core substantive law courses, students considering pursuing careers as transaction lawyers or corporate litigators need to master the basic analytical skills of financial accounting, finance, microeconomics and statistics. The Law School offers courses in financial accounting and finance on a regular basis: Legal Accounting; and Quantitative Corporate Finance or Applied Corporate Finance. Law students can enroll in the following Yale College or School of Management (SOM) courses which also cover that material, as well as courses in microeconomics and statistics: Financial Accounting 170 (which covers comparable material to that covered in Legal Accounting); Management 541 (SOM) or Economics 251a (which cover material similar to that in Quantitative Corporate Finance or Applied Corporate Finance); Economics 115 or 121 (microeconomics); Economics 131or Statistics 100, 101, 102 or 103 (statistics). For Professor Romano's perspective on the implications of the transformation of corporate law scholarship and practice, by the introduction of economics and finance into the field, clickhere.
