Compliance and Risk Management
Last Updated Date:   1 June 2021


5 Credits,  Semester 2

Course Description:
This course examines the rules and standards that govern the subject of compliance and risk management. It starts by examining questions of governance: boards of directors, and executives. We then examine the compliance function through the lens of managers, regulators, prosecutors, whistleblowers, and gatekeepers. Next, we consider particular areas of the law: corruption, anti-money laundering, and export controls. We examine case studies where compliance fails and initiatives that go beyond compliance. Finally, we consider risk management as it pertains to lawyers; topics here include the governance of risk; approaches to risk management; reputational, operational, and enterprise risk.
