International Efforts to Combat Corruption Seminar
Professor Pascale Dubois
J.D. Seminar 166 (cross-listed) | 2 credit hours
International anticorruption has become increasingly “fashionable” among lawyers and policymakers: governments, international organizations, and technical experts all identify corruption as a serious impediment to comprehensive economic development. If left unchecked, corruption threatens to undermine the effectiveness of development initiatives in both the public and private sectors. Growing enforcement of legal instruments such as the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act and the UK Bribery Act have placed anticorruption squarely on the agenda of a wide variety of transnational organizations. With so many variant actors invoking the importance of anticorruption, lawyers must not only have a working knowledge of what corruption entails, but also understand how the development of an international anticorruption legal framework is changing the way business is conducted in a global economy.
Recommended: Prior or concurrent enrollment in at least one course in private or public international law.
