CMS CRASH COURSE: Busi­ness & Law for stu­dents
To be­come an ex­cel­lent cor­por­ate law­yer a de­gree in law is just not enough.  In­side-out know­ledge of cor­por­ate law is just a base. Cor­por­ate law­yers are treated like a part­ner of the man­age­ment in the com­pan­ies they work for and as a trus­ted ad­visor in M&A trans­ac­tions. Do you know why? It’s be­cause of the out­stand­ing busi­ness knowhow they pos­sess, which ranges  across ba­sic eco­nom­ic prin­ciples, tax, mer­gers, crim­in­al law, risk as­sess­ment and last but not least an aware­ness of cur­rent trends and le­gis­lat­ive de­vel­op­ments that can im­pact the sec­tor they are work­ing in. Are you con­sid­er­ing a ca­reer in a cor­por­ate law firm or as in-house law­yer? Then this crash course is just what you need. You will re­ceive help from ex­per­i­enced aud­it­or Mag. Katar­ina Sit­ar Šuštar and Prof. Dr. Aleš Berk Skok, both lec­tur­ers at the School of Eco­nom­ics and Busi­ness, Uni­versity of Ljubljana, and Mag. Ivan Kran­jec, at­tor­ney-at-law and tax spe­cial­ist at CMS Slov­e­nia and lec­turer at MLC Man­age­ment and Law Col­lege Ljubljana. They will equip you with ba­sic un­der­stand­ing of the fol­low­ing top­ics:Fin­an­cial state­ments: o    Con­tent of fin­an­cial state­ments – what do they tell us and how they are inter-con­nec­ted; o    Ba­sic ac­count­ing prin­ciples, cat­egor­ies and re­cog­ni­tion rules; o    Ac­cru­als; o    The dif­fer­ence between fair value, book value and a value of a com­pany at ac­quis­i­tion; o    Changes in equity and how they are rep­res­en­ted in fin­an­cial state­ments; o    Con­sol­id­ated vs. stan­dalone fin­an­cial state­ments; o    IFRS 3 – busi­ness com­bin­a­tions.Valu­ation of com­pan­ies: o    When we need a valu­ation and why, o    Ele­ments of and meth­ods for valu­ations, o    Time com­pon­ent of value, o    Yield, re­quired rate of re­turn, con­trol premi­um, dis­counts for minor­ity share and lack of mar­ket­ab­il­ity, o    How to in­ter­pret valu­ation res­ults.Taxes: o    Value Ad­ded Tax (how does it work, why should we re­gister for VAT), and o    Taxes re­lated to com­pan­ies (Cor­por­ate in­come tax, with­hold­ing tax – the im­pact taxes have on busi­ness). The count­down be­gins There are only lim­ited num­ber of slots: to be ex­act we are only of­fer­ing 25 places. Slots will be filled on the first come first served prin­ciple, so do not hes­it­ate to fill out the re­gis­tra­tion form. And yes, the crash course is ab­so­lutely FREE of charge. On top of that we will add a bit of food and an op­por­tun­ity to net­work with our law­yers and ask the ques­tions that you’ve been mean­ing to ask but nev­er had the chance.

At centre stage: Con­tinu­ous edu­ca­tion is a key to a com­pany’s GDPR com­pli­ance
Our eighth epis­ode of "At Centre Stage" will fo­cus a top­ic heav­ily linked to con­sumer rights: data pro­tec­tion. It’s been clear for a while now that per­son­al data pro­tec­tion is not just a prob­lem for the chief data of­ficer or the chief in­form­a­tion se­cur­ity of­ficer any­more. It spans the whole or­gan­iz­a­tion based on who works with the per­son­al data. Per­son­al data is man­aged at all levels of the or­gan­iz­a­tion – HR, sales, mar­ket­ing, cus­tom­er-ser­vice, man­age­ment and so on.After nearly five years since the im­ple­ment­a­tion of the GDPR, one would think that everything would be run­ning smoothly. But is it?This is cer­tainly not the case in Slov­e­nia, which is now the only coun­try that hasn’t yet fully in­cor­por­ated the GDPR in­to its na­tion­al law. And that’s why we’ve de­cided to once again to in­vest­ig­ate the data pro­tec­tion reg­u­la­tion and try to ex­plain why it is so im­port­ant for busi­nesses as well as con­sumers.With our guests, Ta­jda Vrhovec, a pri­vacy spe­cial­ist with ex­tens­ive ex­per­i­ence in in­sur­ance and bank­ing, and Amela Žrt, at­tor­ney-at-law in CMS Slov­e­nia (who is also a go-to per­son when it comes to data pro­tec­tion and em­ploy­ment mat­ters), will of­fer some clar­ity and guid­ance about data pro­tec­tion to all busi­nesses op­er­at­ing in the EU, but es­pe­cially in Slov­e­nia.EPIS­ODE #8: Con­tinu­ous edu­ca­tion is a key to a com­pany’s GDPR com­pli­ance.•    Im­port­ance of GDPR com­pli­ance for busi­nesses re­lated to pro­tec­tion of con­sumers rights;The mis­takes busi­nesses make most of­ten in the pro­cess of be­com­ing GDPR com­pli­ant and how to avoid them;The biggest changes we can ex­pect based on the draft Slov­e­ni­an Per­son­al Data Pro­tec­tion Act;How to en­sure that all stake­hold­ers that handle per­son­al data are ad­equately in­formed.If you have any ques­tions about this event, please feel free to con­tact us.
