An effective corporate compliance program integrates many aspects of a firm’s compliance efforts. These efforts include complying with governmental laws and regulations, compliance with internal rules and procedures, and developing a culture that values compliance in the organization. An important part of the compliance function is to ensure that various areas in an organization work together to maintain high standards and prevent failures and disasters that can cause harm both inside and outside of the firm.

This year’s Institute will again feature practitioners, current and former government officials, and business and legal scholars, who have broad and deep background and experience in corporate compliance. This year’s program will include expert discussion of sexual harassment in the workplace, the use of cutting-edge psychological research in designing compliance programs, the use of data analytics to improve the compliance function, and the intersection of compliance and risk management. The Institute will also feature a keynote presentation by Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter Jesse Eisinger of ProPublica, who will discuss his new book, The Chickenshit Club: Why the Justice Department Fails to Prosecute Executives. Attendees will have the chance to discuss their own experiences with other compliance officers, lawyers, academics, and other professionals.

Lunch will be served. Reception to follow the program. Full conference agenda will be available here: https://cclg.rutgers.edu/event/third-annual-corporate-compliance-institute/
