LAW 439P - White Collar Crime Practicum.


This course will present a case study of a corporation’s response to allegations that employees’ conduct may have violated federal law (in this case study, the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act).  The class begins by establishing a basic understanding of the relevant federal law, corporate criminal liability principles, and corporate governance structures.  Through the use of the case study, the class will follow the stages and consequences of a company investigation, including (1) the initiation and structure of an internal investigation; (2) document collection and management; (3) witness interviews; (4) assessments of the sufficiency of accounting controls and compliance programs; (5) reporting findings and deciding how to respond; (6) reporting to Government regulators; (6) resolution and remediation.  Each student will participate in the exercise from the point-of-view of a particular participant in the inquiry - corporate general counsel, responsible members of senior management, an outside director of the Board, outside investigating counsel, and key government regulators.   At the end of the course, each student will prepare a written memorandum of relevant findings, legal determinations and advice from that participant’s assigned perspective. Three hours. Hanes
