LAW - 802J Corporate Compliance & Ethics

2 unit(s)
The number and scope of corporate ethical lapses continue to escalate, as do the record-breaking fines and penalties imposed by regulators. On what basis do judges decide to punish corporations and hold the executives liable for misconduct? How do corporations create an ethical culture that will prevent, detect and deter wrongdoing? In this course, we will explore the structure of an effective compliance and ethics program, using the U.S. Federal Sentencing Guidelines as our guide. We will review how corporations effectively mitigate hot risk areas such as False Claims, Government Contracting, Data Privacy, and Anti-Corruption. This course will also explore the unique ethical and social responsibilities compliance officers face in their multiple roles as stewards of the corporation, the voice of employees, and seekers of organizational justice. This course would be invaluable to any student considering a career in the booming field of corporate compliance. Prerequisite(s): LAW 802A Business Associations
