Message from Director Nancy Boswell '87
No issue has taken on greater prominence in the United States and around the world in recent years than corruption. Understanding and mitigating its impact on companies operating across borders, on effective development outcomes, on economic growth in potential markets and, increasingly, on political stability is essential for those engaged in transnational business and development.
There is a growing demand for professionals knowledgeable about relevant conventions, laws, cases, codes of conduct, compliance training, and anti-corruption risk management tools. Opportunities have opened across the U.S. and foreign governments, international organizations, corporations, financial institutions, law firms, and the NGO sector. The U.S. and International Anti-Corruption Law Summer Program draws on the Washington D.C. community of practitioners who bring first-hand experience into the classroom.
As former president & CEO of Transparency International-USA with a career in international trade and finance law, I can attest to the tremendous value of strong legal grounding in anti-corruption law. I invite you to attend the summer program to gain in-depth training from some of the top practitioners in the field.
