  • White collar criminal prosecutions, investigations, and reform efforts have widespread political, social, and economic reverberations that seem to grow, year after year.  The scope and nature of white collar matters have become more complex, as defense attorneys, prosecutors, and regulators must define the contours of cooperation, navigate tumultuous cross-border and multi-jurisdictional issues, and adjust to an evolving and uncertain enforcement landscape—all under intense press and public scrutiny.  Technology adds additional layers of complexity, with cryptocurrency, cybercrime, and cybersecurity posing both opportunities and challenges.The White Collar Crime Committee has assembled a comprehensive full-day program that will explore these and other critical developments that have characterized this era of white collar enforcement. Our panels will include senior government enforcement officials, members of the media, and top practitioners in the field.

    Special Feature: Women in White Collar Kickoff Reception will be held the evening before the institute, on Tuesday, April 26, 2022 from 6pm-8pm, providing an opportunity to network in a more intimate setting. This reception is included in the institute price, and all registrants and faculty are encouraged to attend. Women in White Collar Kickoff Reception will feature a fireside chat with Kathryn Ruemmler, the Chief Legal Officer and General Counsel of Goldman Sachs and the former White House Counsel.
