Course Number: LAW 6930 Credits: 1

Legal/regulatory compliance requirements have seen a sharp increase globally. This increase reflects the rather rapid development of normative values regarding compliance and business ethics of society at large. The proliferation of laws across the globe (and the evolution of existing laws) adds to the complexity of increased compliance requirements for business conduct in areas such as accounting, anti-bribery, antitrust, data privacy, and intellectual property; this impacts both emerging and established companies. Increased penalties for violations have become substantial and reputational damage to companies that result from liability has become significant. This course will provide the analytical tools necessary to understand the complexities of compliance as part of a business risk analysis and to use compliance in shaping business strategy. Students will be assessed based on responses to questions about the case studies.
