Elliott J. Weiss
University of Arizona College of Law
Cardozo Law Review, Vol. 19, No. 2 (1997) (Symposium on the Essays of Warren Buffett).
This essay sets forth the reasons why the author believes it is important to teach accounting and valuation in the basic corporation law course and describes how he uses materials from Warren Buffet's letters to the shareholders of Berkshire Hathaway to teach those subjects. This essay also provides illustrations of how knowledge of accounting and valuation helps students appreciate the significance of three cases taught in most basic courses in corporation law: Kamin v. American Express, Francis v. United Jersey Bank, and Graham v. Allis-Chalmers.
