Global competition for commercial opportunities presents legal and ethical challenges that test the business practices and anti-corruption compliance regimes of modern enterprises and their employees, agents, and affiliates. In an environment in which robust enforcement actions and prosecutions are widespread, companies need to understand how regulators view and interpret the relevant laws, such as the U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act and the U.K. Bribery Act. As the legal landscape evolves, so do best anti-corruption best practices, including regulator expectations around developing and maintaining an effective compliance program. Consideration of the latest developments, enforcement actions, and regulatory intelligence is essential to help companies adapt their compliance programs in order to mitigate anti-corruption risk in a sensible and productive manner.

 Students will master the following at the conclusion of this session:

• Examine the evolving anti-corruption legal terrain, both in the U.S. and abroad

• Recognize key areas of anti-corruption risk and methods for evaluating such risk

• Review recent enforcement actions and extrapolate relevant lessons

• Identify best practices for mitigating key areas of anti-corruption risk

• Examine considerations and strategies in conducting internal investigations

• Discuss regulator expectations of companies reporting potential issues
