Compliance programs and the law – an unfinished history

Last month, I spoke at a Rand Corporation symposium on compliance programs, corporate culture and public policy and Rand has graciously allowed me to share my white paper on C&E programs and the law from that event.  The paper – which is still being edited for final publication in a Rand proceedings book – charts how, over the past 20 years,  developments in the law have played a key role in the creation  of C&E programs of unprecedented scope and vigor.  It also argues that  – due to inconsistent enforcement of that law – we have now entered a more ambiguous era, increasingly characterized by a division of companies into  C&E “haves” and “have-nots.”

While the paper was written largely for public policy purposes (encouraging the government to do more to promote C&E programs) it may also be of interest to anyone looking for a “crash course” on the interplay of law and C&E programs.

I look forward to your comments.
