Brooklyn Law School Teams With Deloitte To Promote Thinking Like A Business Person

NEW YORK, Jan. 14, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ --  Brooklyn Law School, in collaboration with Deloitte Financial Advisory Services LLP ("Deloitte FAS") and John Oswald, '84, President and CEO of Capital Trust Group, recently conducted a business "Boot Camp" designed to teach law students valuable skills for succeeding in the business world. This unique course, the first of its kind, involved more than 200 students during the winter break.  Developed and taught by top business professionals and the School's corporate and business law faculty, the program provided students with the skills and basic business literacy they will need to serve their clients.  

The intense "mini-MBA," offered to students free-of-charge and for course credit, is intended to enhance the business law training they already receive. Oswald, who generously underwrote the program, said his goal is to inspire young lawyers to expand their business vocabulary and acumen in order to deliver the services that corporate clients now demand and law firms must provide to thrive in today's increasingly competitive and challenging market.

Barry Salzberg, '77, Global CEO of Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu Limited, introduced the course, stressing the importance of this type of program in today's changing legal, business and global economic landscape. He encouraged students to step outside of their comfort zones to think more like business people. "No matter what path you choose — private practice, government service or joining a public interest organization — becoming more business literate will be critical to your future success," Salzberg said.

The Boot Camp was modeled in part on law firm training on business and financial topics that Deloitte FAS has provided to first-year associates. The curriculum traced the evolution of a hypothetical business from its founding and initial capitalization to its acquisition of another company. The course taught students the vocabulary and skills needed to understand and implement clients' business objectives, and enable students to launch their own entrepreneurial careers.
