Online CLE DOJ Evaluation

Join us for this Knowledge Group Online CLE DOJ Evaluation Webinar. As companies continue to thrive, the significance of a compliant corporate environment is also being underscored. To avoid the complexities of corporate investigations and criminal penalties, implementation of robust and effective corporate compliance programs should be prioritized. To help companies do just that, the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) issued its “Evaluation of Corporate Compliance Programs” in 2017. Businesses, however, should have an in-depth understanding of the guidance to ensure it is effectively utilized. Furthermore, they should be proactive in updating their compliance programs and risk mitigation practices to ensure conformity with the evolving DOJ regulations.

Our panel of key thought leaders and practitioners will offer a discussion of the fundamentals as well as updates regarding the DOJ’s evaluation guidance.
