LAW 987

Business Crime

Business & Tax Law, Criminal Justice

This course on Business Crime will cover the most important statutes governing organizational misconduct. Specifically, the course will cover mail/wire fraud, domestic corruption, the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, and Section 1956/1957 money laundering.  We also will cover and analyze federal corporate criminal liability and U.S. policy on corporate criminal enforcement. In so doing, we will also develop an understanding of how to think about deterrence and the role of norms in the context of corporate criminal misconduct.  Time permitting, we will also spend a session on 4th and 5th amendment doctrines that are particularly relevant to corporate criminal enforcement, including those relating to corporation's own investigations.
