SIU Law to Offer FCPA Course

Go to law school, learn about bribery.

Or anti-bribery.

Southern Illinois University School of Law will be offering a course this fall in the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA).

The course will be taught by Assistant Professor Mike Koehler — the FCPA Professor.

Koehler said the course is one of the first FCPA law school classes.

“Understanding the FCPA’s new era is a fundamental skill-set for lawyers and other professionals navigating the global marketplace,” Koehler said. “Simply put, the FCPA needs to be part of future lawyers’ professional vocabulary and skill-set.”

Koehler said he will use as course material his soon to be published The Foreign Corrupt Practices Act in a New Era (Edward Elgar Publishing forthcoming 2014).

“Students will dissect the FCPA’s new era and in doing so will confront the FCPA statutory text, legislative history, judicial decisions, enforcement agency guidance, and resolved FCPA enforcement actions,” Koehler said.

“We are very excited that Professor Koehler has designed this new course on the FCPA,” said  said SIU Law Dean Cynthia Fountaine. “His expertise on the Act is recognized nationally and internationally, so this is a great way to make sure that our students benefit from his knowledge and experience.”
