Course Description:

This January term course meets Monday-Friday, January 12-16.

This short course looks at the criminalization of financial transactions that may arise in the course of operating an international business. We will focus principally on U.S. federal criminal law, although the class also will consider the implementation by other countries of international agreements relating to bribery and money laundering. The class will concentrate on the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, money laundering, the Racketeering Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act, and wire and mail fraud. The class will emphasize the role of private lawyers in advising clients about the prevention of criminal charges and in-house compliance policies, rather than the strategic choices to be made in the course of criminal trials.

ATTENDANCE REQUIREMENT: Attendance at all class sessions is required. Enrolled students who do not attend the first class session will be dropped. Students seeking to enroll in this J-term course must attend the first class session.

Prerequisites:Criminal Law
