Corruption’s adverse impact on government accountability, business integrity, economic development and national security has led to a burgeoning global demand in the public, private, and non-profit sectors for skilled professionals. The U.S. and International Anti-Corruption Law Certificate Program is designed for professionals to develop or deepen their skills on how to prevent, investigate, and prosecute corruption and to remediate and defend in case of violations. Equip yourself to meet this demand.
The Program provides a peer-to-peer learning experience for government officials and private and non-profit practitioners through interaction with experts, including present and former U.S. and foreign government prosecutors, investigators from international organizations and law firm and corporate counsel who bring their experience into the classroom. Site visits and prominent guest speakers provide opportunities to deepen expertise and expand networks.
Timely, intensive and practical training is offered on transnational bribery laws, recent cases and compliance practices; cutting edge procurement corruption risk identification and mitigation tools; key aspects of the U.S. anti-corruption and public integrity laws and institutions; and, corruption and human rights. A special track on the UN Convention against Corruption analyzes its provisions and provides practical guidance on their implementation and participation in the review mechanism as well as guidance on stolen asset recovery requirements and techniques.
Past participants have included judges, prosecutors, anti-corruption commission officials, in-house and law firm counsel, non-profit practitioners, contractors and development professionals from around the world, enriching exchanges and connections for the future.
Classes meet in the morning, afternoon and early evening to accommodate busy schedules of professionals. Participants receive either a Certificate of Legal Studies in Anti-Corruption Law or CLE credit; LL.M. and 3L JD students can receive up to 2 academic credits per ABA Standards.
