Law Review Symposium 2015 - 1: Panel One - Why Regulate Corruption?

Corruption and Compliance: Promoting Integrity in a Global Economy UC Davis Law Review Symposium 2015 January 23, 2015 Congress passed the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act of 1977 at a time when U.S. corporations were bribing top government officials in Asia, Europe, and Latin America. The law has gained some modern traction over the last five years, with major prosecutions of some of the wealthiest multinational companies in the world. Similarly, the United Kingdom, Brazil, and other countries have recently passed aggressive anti-bribery legislation. This Symposium will address current domestic and international approaches to the problem and will explore the practical effect of these laws on the global economy.
