White Collar Crime: Cases, Materials, and Problems
draws from the authors' practical experience in both prosecuting and defending white collar crime cases. The text also explores recurring issues of policy and theory in these cases. By combining these practical and theoretical perspectives--illustrated by the extensive use of problems throughout the text--White Collar Crime
--offers an approach that is unique among white collar crime, corporate crime, and federal criminal law casebooks offers an approach that is unique among white collar crime, corporate crime, and federal criminal law casebooks.
The text is organized to provide coverage of both the law and practice of white collar crime. The text thus provides: Comprehensive coverage of the substantive law of white collar crime (topics include conspiracy, mail fraud, wire fraud, securities fraud, computer crimes, bribery, extortion, perjury, false statements, obstruction of justice, tax fraud, currency transaction reporting crimes, money laundering, and RICO);An overview of the primary practical and procedural issues that typically arise in and often are unique to white collar cases (topics include internal investigations, compliance programs, civil actions and fines, parallel proceedings, grand juries, Fifth Amendment, sentencing, and forfeitures); andPractice problems to enhance both effective teaching and student comprehension.
For the new edition, we have more than doubled the number of problems, including single-issue focused problems and broader review problems. We have also completely revised the sentencing chapter, covering a number of significant post-Booker cases (such as Rita and Gall), and have substantially revised the money laundering chapter, covering both the Santos and Cuellar decisions. The revised text also includes other recent and important white collar crime cases, such as Safavian (false statements case arising out of the Abramoff scandal) and Stringer (parallel proceedings case).
