Loyola Law School's International & Comparative Law Review (ILR) will host a panel of experts to discuss the issues related to the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, the 1977 law that governs accounting transparency and bribery. Questions address will include:

  • What is the FCPA and how effective is it? 
  • What are the current goals and priorities for FCPA enforcement? 
  • How do corporations respond to FCPA enforcement efforts and what risk-management strategies do/should they employ? (includes discussion of intersection between criminal and civil) 
  • How do other countries approach corruption? 
  • What risks do individuals face under the FCPA? 
  • What does the future hold for the FCPA and are there alternative approaches on the horizon? 
  • What advice do you have for someone who is interested in pursuing a practice involving the FCPA?
