Anticorruption law has become an increasingly important area of practice for in-house and outside counsel alike in recent years. It is also increasingly the subject of international and intergovernmental organization scrutiny.

Corruption adversely impacts economic development and stability. Multinational corporations have the power to advance that economic development through trade and investment, but are ethically, and in certain cases legally, bound to ensure that such trade and investment are pursued transparently. For this reason, states are increasingly legislating against and enforcing regulations proscribing corruption.

This course will examine the global phenomenon of corruption and the existing legal and voluntary frameworks under both US and international law to govern it. The course will focus primarily on corporate corruption with a comprehensive study of the US Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA), related decisions, enforcement actions and enforcement agency guidance. It will focus specifically on the role of the in-house counsel and compliance professional in reducing potential liability risks under the law. The course will then evaluate and compare existing international frameworks for combating corruption globally (including the OECD Convention on Combating Bribery) and will close with an examination of private initiatives, voluntary frameworks, standards and guidelines for preventing corporate acts of corruption.

This course meets over three days:
Thursday, November 4th 6:25 PM - 9:05 PM
Friday, November 5th 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM and 3:10 PM - 6:10 PM
Saturday, November 6th 09:00 AM - 12:00 PM and 1:30 PM - 4:10 PM

Attendance at the first class is mandatory for all currently enrolled and waitlisted students; any currently enrolled or waitlisted students who are not present on the first day of class (without prior permission of the instructor) will be dropped. The instructor will continue to take attendance throughout the add/drop period and anyone who moves off the waitlist into the class must continue to attend or have prior permission of the instructor in order not to be dropped.
