The American University International Law Review is pleased to invite the practitioners, scholars, and members of the public to the 2013 AUILR symposium, Bribes Without Borders: The Challenge of Fighting Corruption in the Global Context. The program will take place on February 12th and run from 9am to 5:30pm. Corruption is one of the world's most pervasive problems, affecting nearly every area of legal practice. The symposium will feature a distinguished group of practitioners from high-profile law firms, the federal government, and international organizations such as the World Bank as it examines the difficulty of fighting corruption in the 21st century. Robert Leventhal, director of anti-corruption and good governance initiatives at the U.S. State Department, will present a keynote address on the future of anti-corruption enforcement, while panels discuss the role of criminal prosecutions, asset recovery efforts, public accountability, and interventions from the international donor community.
