Last March I was pleased to play a role, along with Professor Daniel Chow (here – Ohio State) and the staff of the Ohio State Law Journal, in organizing “The FCPA At Thirty-Five and Its Impact on Global Business.” The full-day symposium at The Ohio State University Moritz College of Law included presentations from top DOJ officials, leading academics from both the U.S. and U.K., and experienced practitioners on various aspects of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act and related topics. (For instance, see here for a previous guest post regarding comments by Chuck Duross (DOJ – FCPA Unit Chief) at the event).
Papers presented at the event were recently published in Volume 73 of the Ohio State Law Journal and it likely represents the most extensive collection of FCPA scholarship between two covers.
