LAW658  A  MINDFULNESS AND MOTIVATING BUSINESS COMPLIANCE WITH THE LAW

Course Description
White-collar criminals and others who cause businesses not to comply with the law pose risks both to society and to the businesses that employ them. Businesses thus have interests to try to teach and otherwise motivate legal compliance. This course will examine how businesses work to create incentives, attitudes, and orientations to increase the likelihood of compliance. In particular, it will examine the roles that mindfulness practices can play in fostering a culture of compliance. Application of these insights connect also to the personal domain of aligning one’s good intentions with one's decision-making and conduct.

Short Course Attendance Policy
Due to the small number of meetings, attendance to all meetings/classes for short courses is mandatory. Students who miss more than one class session (80 minute) of a 1-credit short course are subject to administrative withdrawal and will have a W for the course on their transcripts
