Prerequisites: RCC*. The course on white collar crime is divided into three major sections. First, it considers overarching principles of corporate criminal liability, personal liability in an organizational setting, appropriate sanctions for white collar crimes, and the grand jury process. Second, it examines a number of “generic” offenses, that cut across substantive areas, including conspiracy, mail fraud, wire fraud, false statements, perjury, and obstruction of justice. Finally, the course explores more particularized types of white collar offenses such as bribery of public officials, RICO, tax fraud, computer crime, and criminal antitrust violations. The course typically features three or four guest speakers from the local community who either prosecute or defend white collar crime cases.

Beginning Fall 2008, satisfies Administrative Law requirement.
