Mounting allegations of corruption, violations of well-established ethical norms and the weakening of accountability mechanisms in the U.S. and many other parts of the world underscore the critical need for well-versed legal professionals.

This program offers practical training on transnational bribery laws and compliance practices;  cutting edge corruption risk identification and mitigation tools for public contracting; and  critical aspects of the U.S. anti-corruption legal, institutional and political framework.

Leading practitioners share their first-hand experience with geographically and professionally diverse professionals in small classroom settings,  fostering deeper understanding and lasting connections for the future.

We look forward to hearing from you. Should you have any questions or concerns regarding the program, please feel free to contact anticorruption@wcl.american.edu.
