WFU Law School
Law & Valuation
Table of Contents


This course considers the interplay of law and modern valuation techniques. As you'll discover, legal policy drives the process -- that is, the perceived purpose of the valuation generally dictates the methodology.

Besides looking to policy, a principal purpose for the course is to bridge the JD-MBA cultural gap. JD students should become familiar with financial valuation techniques, as well as rudimentary spreadsheet use. MBA students should become familiar with legal case and policy analysis, as well as rudimentary legal research. As you read on, you'll notice that I anticipate this will be a collaborative learning experience.

For the first class, please read the overview and syllabus, as well as the first reading assignments.

A better truth is ... larger, roomier, more complex, and more authentic than the narrower version. That is ... the central value of human education."
