Course Description

LAWS 6221
Compliance
General Description:
How does a corporation establish and manage expectations for the conduct of its work force? What does a corporation need to do to keep itself out of the headlines for scandals, and how should it respond to problems when they arise? This course will explore these topics. It will cover the requirements for corporate compliance programs and the key components of them, including the role of the audit committee, internal audit, and ethics and compliance. It will also look closely at a few different compliance regimes, including Sarbanes Oxley, the privacy and security components of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA), the evolution of other data privacy standards like 'Do Not Track,' and the anti-corruption standards of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act and the UK Bribery Act. Anticipate that grades will be based on class participation, three to five short written exercises throughout the semester, and a take home final.
