The NYU Program on Corporate Compliance and Enforcement, directed by Professors Jennifer Arlen '86 and Geoffrey Miller, promotes research on the effective enforcement of legal rules and on methods and strategies for enhancing compliance with applicable standards. Each year, three students are accepted into the program, which enables students to gain unparalleled expertise in this area, both through courses and through access to leading practitioners.
