Business Law Essentials (Morning Session)
This course covers basic legal principles that every accountant should be familiar with to avoid common legal disputes and costly litigation. By analyzing business law issues from the standpoint and background of accountants and auditors, this course will help you develop an approach to client and practice issues with a sensitivity and appreciation for the legal ramifications that can occur.

Delaware Ethics for CPAs (Afternoon Session)
Professional conduct and ethical behavior are really the backbone of the entire accounting and auditing profession. These components form the foundation upon which our creditability with the general public is built. Without it, there is no profession. Whether you are a practitioner in public accounting or business and industry, you must always act in accordance with the requirements that define professional conduct and ethical behavior. This course has been updated for recent amendments to the licensure law, is approved by the Delaware Board of Accountancy and fulfills the Delaware Board of Accountancy's biennial four-credit-hour ethics course requirement for permit renewals. This course includes a detailed review of professional and ethical conduct requirements specifically applicable to Delaware CPAs; an overview of the core principles of professional conduct -- integrity, objectivity, and independence; the AICPA Code of Professional Conduct, including recent updates; and a brief look at the principles and concepts which form the foundation of ethical behavior. The primary objective of this course is to provide a formal program of learning which contributes directly to the professional competence of Delaware accountancy permit holders.
