      This appears to be a problem with the link on the Deloitte website. I'll follow up with them to see if it can be corrected or if it is a temporary error. In the meantime, you can email them through their normal email channel at

      or contact directly at

      Phone Number : 203-761-3000

      Trueblood Cases at the AAA Annual Meetings in Denver
      The following is an excerpt from the AAA Announcements message, August 2. 2011

      "Mini" Trueblood Case Study Seminar
      One of the concurrent sessions offered at this year's Annual Meeting will be a session entitled "Effective Learning through Cases:  Examples from the Trueblood Case Study Series." Three financial accounting cases from the current series of approximately fifty cases on the Deloitte Foundation's website will be used to demonstrate how these cases can be used effectively in the classroom. Participants will be encouraged to actively participate in discussions and will benefit from exposure to situations dealt with in public practice. All session participants will receive the cases & solutions as takeaways. This concurrent session will be led by James Fuehrmeyer, retired Deloitte & Touche LLP audit partner (and current faculty member at the University of Notre Dame), who will discuss three cases from our Trueblood Accounting & Auditing Case Study Series. The session will be held on Monday, August 8, from 10:15 - 11:45 am. Please refer to your Annual Meeting program when you arrive in Denver for further details.

      Jensen Comment
      One of the most important initiatives ever undertaken in academic accountancy history is the Deloitte (and Touche) initiative and funding to join accounting professors and practitioners in the writing of case studies. For many years the format has been to bring professors and practitioners together face-to-face in resorts for the purpose of working intensely (night and day) in writing cases and case solutions. These were then published in volumes available from the Deloitte Foundation and  in accounting history centers such as the Accounting Libraries at the University if Mississippi ---

      I suspect that many university libraries and faculty offices have shelved these case studies over the years.

      Professors can obtain copies of cases and case solutions from the Deloitte Foundation ---

      Of course for teaching purposes many of these cases are now dated because they were based on standards that have been replaced and amended. One possible student project would be have students update selected cases and case solutions in light of changed standards.

      While cases from prior years are certainly outdated in many respects, the "live" cases on the Foundation website are updated every summer. All the professor's solutions are tied to the Codification and include discussion of pending pronouncements. A lot of the cases are also set up to be worked with both US GAAP and IFRS. Normally five cases get replaced with new cases every year.
