This book has been replaced by a newer edition:
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.
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); and
- Practice problems to enhance both effective teaching and student comprehension.
For the third edition, the authors have continued their emphasis on the most recent, cutting-edge issues in white collar crime and litigation. They have included a number of recent United States Supreme Court and Circuit court decisions. The text expands its focus on policy and practical aspects of white collar practice, including the addition of more than 30 new practice problems and exercises.
