White Collar Crime Survey

Each year the American Criminal Law Review puts out a survey on white collar crime.  This year the topics covered are:

  • Antitrust Violations
  • Computer Crimes
  • Corporate Criminal Liability   
  • Employment-Related Crimes
  • Environmental Crimes
  • False Statements and False Claims
  • Federal Criminal Conspiracy
  • Financial Institutions Fraud
  • Foreign Corrupt Practices Fraud
  • Health Care Fraud
  • Intellectual Property Crimes
  • Mail and Wire Fraud
  • Money Laundering
  • Obstruction of Justice
  • Perjury
  • Public Corruption
  • Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations
  • Securities Fraud
  • Tax Violations

What is fascinating, is going back to last year here and checking the journal of last year to see what topics have been added or deleted.  False Claims and False Statements were separate last year and have now been folded into one category. There no longer are notes specifically titled, "Federal Criminal Conflict of Interest," "Federal Food and Drug Act Violations" and   "Procedural Issues."  And what has been added - "Public Corruption."  It is without doubt that Public Corruption has been a hot topic of the year. 

The essay accompanying the volume this year is Motion Denied: Systematic Impediments to White Collar Criminal Defendants' Trial Preparation, by Robert G. Morvillo, Barry A. Bohrer, and Barbara L. Balter.
