Event on 2012-12-13 12:30:00
Corruption is omnipresent in international trade. It is estimated that over 10% of the cost of international trade involves the payment of bribes and other forms of corruption. Worldwide legislators, international business, and law enforcement agencies have responded to increasing levels of corruption with new conventions and local laws barring certain bribes and corrupt practices, along with increasing levels of policing and prosecution. The United States in particular leads the way on the enforcement of international anti-bribery laws. Not only do these laws cover the bribery of public officials, but prohibitions have been enacted and enforced against purely private bribery as well. This class focuses specifically on anti-bribery law as the most common form of corruption, including the U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, the U.S. Travel Act combined with the Colorado Commercial Bribery statute, the OECD Convention on Combating Bribery of Foreign Public Officials in International Business Transactions, and the UK Bribery Act 2010. Other forms of corruption such as prohibitions on the exercise of influence over public officials and anti-money laundering are not covered in this course.

The course covers the most common and relevant anti-bribery laws for Colorado companies, reviews special issues on the use of intermediaries, provides recent case examples, describes future trends, and offers resources on creating all-important anti-bribery compliance programs.
