Spring Business Law Presentation Series with Professor Orcutt
You are invited to a lunch seminar series taking place this semester with the aim of introducing students to various business and finance topics.
Good lawyers must understand more than just the law in a modern legal practice. Many of the most interesting problems we will face as lawyers will be multidisciplinary involving a combination of legal, business, and even technological problems. In that vein, Prof. Orcutt will give a series of lunch talks about basic business topics.
His initial talks will focus on valuation. What is something worth? These talks should help you to understand:
- How do you value commercial assets generally?
- How do you value intellectual property assets?
- How do you value financial instruments (e.g., common stock)?
- How do you value entire companies?
- How can lawyers use valuation techniques to improve their decision-making?
- Accounting basic.
The presentations will occur every other week:
Tuesday, February 4, 2014 @ 12:00 p.m. in Rm 282
Tuesday, February 18, 2014 @ 12:00 p.m. in Room 282
Wednesday, March 5, 2014 @ 12:00 p.m. in Room 282
Tuesday, March 18, 2014 @ 12:00 p.m. in Room 282
Tuesday, April 1, 2014 @ 12:00 p.m in Room 282
Tuesday, April 15, 2014 @ 12:00 p.m. in Room 282
In addition to valuation topics, Prof. Orcutt will give talks on a few business “current topics.” For example, crowdfunding has become a hot topic. Is it just a fad, or will crowdfunding fundamentally reshape how startups and other small companies access the capital they need to grow? The new crowdfunding regulatory system could be in place by this summer. Prof. Orcutt will explain what you should know about this timely and important subject.
