FCPA Professor Turns 7

7

Seven years ago, I launched FCPA Professor with this simple mission statement.

“After a decade-long private practice legal career focused on the FCPA, I am pleased to launch FCPA Professor in connection with my new academic career. To be sure, there are other websites and blogs which cover FCPA topics. However, FCPA Professor seeks to inject a much-needed scholarly voice into FCPA issues.
