Abstract: The thematic essay in this volume discusses the development of white collar crime and corporate criminal liability, the use of ignorance of the law as a justification for white collar criminality, and a recommendation that existing legislation be amended to provide clear definitions of the law's boundaries. Subsequent articles cover topics ranging from antitrust violations and computer-related crimes to employment-related crimes, environmental crimes, false claims, false statements, Federal criminal conflict of interest, Federal criminal conspiracy, Federal Food and Drug Act violations, financial institutions fraud, and violations of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act. Other subject areas include intellectual property crimes, mail and wire fraud, money laundering, obstruction of justice, Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations, securities fraud, and tax evasion. The procedural section consists of separate sections on the pre- and posttrial considerations most relevant to the white collar crime practitioner. Chapter references
