Spring 2021
LAW589  A  INTERNATIONAL ANTI-CORRUPTION LAW AND PRACTICE

Course Description
This course will focus on the United States’ enforcement of anti-corruption laws, including the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (“FCPA”), to combat foreign corruption and bribery committed by domestic and foreign companies and individuals. Because many FCPA and other corruption cases are resolved without trial, this course will focus on critical, unresolved issues, such as the FCPA’s definitions of a foreign “instrumentality” and “foreign official,” as well as the scope of U.S. extra-territorial jurisdiction. We will focus on recent high-profile FCPA cases and the precedent set by the few appellate decisions relating the FCPA. This course will also discuss foreign and international laws and conventions against corruption, including the OECD Convention on Combatting Bribery of Foreign Officials in International Business Transactions and the UK’s Anti-Bribery Act. We will explore the critical issues that arise from the growing trend in trans-national investigations and prosecutions, including extradition issues that arise in FCPA prosecutions, and Interpol implications.
