It will introduce participants to pertinent state, federal, and non-US laws (including, for example, Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, (“FCPA”), Sarbanes-Oxley Act, privacy laws, and the General Data Protection Regulation ("GDPR"), etc.) dealing with corporate compliance and take participants through the legal process of addressing an alleged violation of one or more of those laws or regulations. It will familiarize participants with the nature of a violation of state or federal laws and regulations, the legal and procedural steps of litigating such a violation, and the possible restitution that might be expected from the perpetrator of such a violation.

The course will use recent or ongoing state and federal court cases to help familiarize participants with the practical application of the subject matter of the course.
