Compliance, Ethics, and Enforcement in International Trade
The John Marshall Law School in Chicago is holding an afternoon CLE program on Compliance, Ethics, and Enforcement and International Trade. Speakers include Lawrence Friedman (Barnes, Richardson & Colburn, LLP), Lindsay Edgar (Accenture), Kim Nemirow, (Ropes & Gray), Sarah DiLorenzo (Arthur J. Gallagher & Co.), Michael Hodes (Hodes, Keating and Pilon), and Jim Schultz (U.S. Customs & Border Protection).
Among other information shared in the program is that Chicago is one of the nation's busier ports for seizures of imported merchandise that violate intellectual property rights. Some of these seized goods would also have presented health and safety violations.
The CLE program is followed by the annual Dominick L. DiCarlo Memorial Lecture on the U.S. Court of International Trade. The speaker this year for that program is Chief Judge Timothy C. Stanceu of the U.S. Court of International Trade.
