Yesterday the FCPA Blog's senior editor Jessica Tillipman talked about GW Law's compliance training for JD candidates. She was responding to our post urging law schools to teach compliance. We've also heard from profs at other schools and a recent grad who's now a compliance officer for a well-known international manufacturer.
Yesterday, my FCPA Blog colleague, Dick Cassin, posted Memo to law schools: The world needs compliance officers, in which he implored law schools to train J.D. candidates in compliance. He also noted that while a few schools teach the FCPA and white collar courses, compliance is not taught in law schools.

As readers of the FCPA Blog know, the U.S. federal government has traditionally cross-debarred contractors across the federal government -- once a contractor is debarred by one agency, that contractor is automatically debarred by all. Similarly, since 2010, the Multilateral Development Banks (MDBs) have had a cross-debarment agreement in place, providing for the mutual enforcement of debarment decisions with respect to the four harmonized sanctionable practices, i.e. corruption, fraud, coercion, and collusion.
