    About the Symposium
    No longer a new or emerging phenomenon, corporate compliance has become an essential component of corporate life. It owes its importance to the fact that government enforcement officials and regulators have transformed the firm’s compliance function into an integral player in their overarching strategy to ensure compliance with law and regulation and to punish and deter wrongdoing. On the one hand, the corporate firm relies on the compliance department to educate, monitor, investigate, and implement internal reforms designed to improve corporate culture and internal control systems. At the same time, the government increasingly relies on the compliance department to disclose wrongdoing, share information freely, and inculcate in corporate employees powerful, law-abiding behavioral norms.

    Compliance has become increasingly complex and its failures can have dramatic consequences for a firm. As our knowledge of compliance evolves, so too does our understanding of the ways in which three key constituencies involved in compliance interact: corporate boards and executives, internal compliance officers and the broader compliance industry, and government enforcement officials and regulators.

    The purpose of this Symposium is to identify and explore emerging trends in corporate compliance. Three panels of experts drawn from law schools and business schools will share their research, knowledge of compliance practice, and diverse perspectives on corporate compliance. They will also explore how the compliance function has matured in a relatively short time, and how it might be transformed over the next decade against a backdrop of profound technological, organizational, and industrial change.
