Accounting Research Guide

This guide features access to U.S. and International accounting standards.

Getting Started

Attorneys often need to understand accounting in order to understand business-related areas of law such as corporations, tax law, securities law, and white collar crime. This research guide describes resources in the Georgetown Law Library and on the Internet for researching U.S. and international accounting standards.

If you are beginning your accounting research from scratch (that is, you have no citations to applicable accounting standards), or if you don't understand the accounting standards you've already found, Secondary Sources can help.  If you have a citation, go to Where to Find Standards When You Have a Citation.
