This law school casebook addresses substantive and procedural areas of importance in white-collar criminal practice. The book covers a variety of substantive crimes, including perjury, false statements, false claims, obstruction of justice, mail and wire fraud, public corruption, insider trading, conspiracy, Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) Act, and money laundering. It then tackles procedural issues critical to white-collar practice such as grand jury, discovery, the Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination as applied to testimony and physical evidence, the attorney-client privilege, representation issues, plea bargaining and cooperation agreements, and parallel proceedings. The materials emphasize ethical issues facing criminal law practitioners. This revision covers the updated corporate charging policy, the Stein decision, and other areas (honest services fraud, RICO, etc.) that have seen a great deal of litigation in the last 2 years.
