ABA’s 36th National Institute on White Collar Crime - McDermott Will & Emery

ABA’s 36th National Institute on White Collar Crime


The 2021 White Collar Crime National Institute marks its 36th year on October 27-29, 2021. The institute proudly returns for in person meetings (with all requisite distancing and precautions) after being presented in 2020 in virtual fashion due to the conronavirus pandemic, to present outstanding panelists who deal with some of the most significant issues of our time.

This institute has been attended by leading federal and state judges and prosecutors, law enforcement officials, defense attorneys, corporate in-house counsel, and members of the academic community.  The faculty regularly includes some of the top members of the white collar bar in the United States and abroad.  Among the audience are nationally renowned lawyers, as well as many who are beginning to concentrate in the white collar area.

This year, each panel will particularly focus on the impact of COVID-19 on the various substantive areas, including government initiatives and investigations to combat fraud related to the virus and new practices resulting from the virus. In addition, there will be a panel on the impact of COVID-19 on the white collar practice, including the conduct of investigations by prosecutors and grand jury, and the handling of motions practice and trials.

Once again, we will have the much acclaimed panel of judges, general counsel, and enforcers panel, the latter consisting of the leadership of the DOJ Criminal and Civil Divisions and the Directors of Enforcement of the SEC and CFTC.
