Event has expired. Registration for this event is no longer available.
Prosecutors frequently seek to hold corporations criminally liable for the alleged misconduct of employees. This program promises a spirited discussion of both the theory and practice of corporate criminal liability, with perspectives from current and former prosecutors, defense lawyers, in-house counsel and a federal district judge. The panel will address issues of prosecutorial discretion, different forms of corporate criminal resolutions, collateral consequences, including the impact on individual defendants, and the role of the courts.
