In reaction to corruption’s negative impact on government accountability, business competition and integrity, effective economic development and national security, there is a rising global demand for skilled practitioners to help prevent, investigate, and prosecute corruption and to remediate and defend in cases of violations. Equip yourself to meet this demand from the public, private, and non-profit sectors.
The U.S. and International Anti-Corruption Law Program is designed for practitioners seeking to enhance their expertise. Timely, intensive and practical training is offered on transnational bribery laws and compliance practices; cutting edge corruption risk identification and mitigation tools; key aspects of the U.S. anti-corruption legal framework; and, corruption and human rights. A special track on the UN Convention against Corruption analyzes its provisions, their implementation, participation in the peer review mechanism, asset recovery and the impact of transnational law enforcement.
Leading expert lecturers, including present and former U.S. and foreign government prosecutors, investigators for international organizations, and law firm and corporate counsel, bring their experience to the classroom. Site visits and prominent guest speakers provide opportunities to deepen expertise and expand networks.
Participants come from geographically and professionally diverse backgrounds, enriching exchanges and connections for the future.
Classes meet in the morning, afternoon, and evening to accommodate the busy schedules of professionals seeking a Certificate of Legal Studies in Anti-Corruption Law or CLE credit or LL.M. and upper level JD students seeking academic credit.
