LAW 667 - Fraud and Fraud Investigation Seminar

Credits, 3 sem. hrs.
In recent years statutory and common law fraud actions have filled the courts and the news. Fraud constitutes an increasing concern and target for litigation and enforcement actions. New definitions, procedures and enforcement mechanisms have changed the face of fraud investigation and prosecution. This Seminar will touch on traditional areas of fraud investigation and prosecution along with emerging statutory and common law fraud issues. It may consider both academic and practical aspects on the definition, identification, and redress of fraud and fraud-related issues. It may also cover practical issues of cooperation with government inquiry, and the waiver of privilege. The seminar will have a substantial and comprehensive research project culminating in a paper of high quality that will satisfy the writing requirement .
