I was promoted today to a Senior Associate at my firm. One of the senior managing directors suggested that I should take the time and learn some fundamental legal concepts relating to M&A, capital markets, and bankruptcy/re-organization if I want to quickly move up to VP. Particularly focusing on M&A and bankruptcies, how can I get some legal know-how without going to law school? I talked to some friends that are attorneys who suggested finding some books or CE courses. I don't want to pay for a CE course that I may not even have time to attend. Any suggestions on comprehensive books to read? Length is not an issue. I'm just looking for a few books that will give a broad overview of the legal aspects of M&A and bankruptcies/re-organizations.
