  • Description

    Organizational Compliance and Ethics is designed to provide the theoretical and practical foundations for a career in global compliance, addressing the full range of subject matters that a lawyer may encounter in managing legal risk for a multinational enterprise. While the book explores this new field through the prism of the FCPA, it imparts a skill-set that is broadly applicable to different industries and compliance-related functions. In particular, students learn how to tailor a compliance program to an enterprise’s specific operations and business strategy.
