The mission of the White Collar Crime Committee is to educate and be a resource for practitioners on those aspects of white collar criminal law that impact businesses and executives and to review and analyze the government's efforts to regulate business conduct via criminal investigations and prosecutions.
- Approximately 270 members.
- We have three committee meetings each year, in the fall, winter and spring, with participation of most Committee members via conference call. Each Committee meeting usually includes a presentation on a key topic, as well as a networking component.
- Our numerous active Subcommittees focus on a wide range of white collar topics.
- We sponsor and co-sponsor programs at each Meeting concerning issues of significant interest to practitioners, including the latest developments in white collar issues of interest to the business community.
- We co-sponsor a dinner at the Section’s Spring Meeting with other Business Law Section Committees which is open to all attendees of the Meeting.
- We publish a Committee newsletter 3 times a year.
- The Committee is small enough to provide any member who is interested with a significant opportunity to participate in Committee activities.
