In the event that you or others in your organization suspect a crime has been committed, there are a number of steps that can be taken to protect the company as well as procedures that can be adopted to avoid similar issues in the future. You will begin this course by recognizing the function, course, and consequences of an internal investigation. You will review the steps that take place in an internal investigation and prepare what you should do in case you're asked to be investigated. You will then explore what happens when the Department of Justice becomes involved in your investigation through a grand jury. You will choose the best course of action when you first encounter the Department of Justice and gain a clear sense of what a grand jury investigation entails. Finally, you will apply the lessons from this course to evaluate criminal liability in an insider trading case. You will explore the sources of insider trading law and analyze an insider trading case to decide whether criminal actions have taken place.
