Business Law in the Public Interest

The NYU Program on Corporate Compliance and Enforcement (PCCE) is a law and research program dedicated to developing a richer and deeper understanding of the causes of corporate misconduct and the nature of effective enforcement and compliance.

PCCE is directed by faculty director Jennifer Arlen '86Through practical discourse and legal scholarship, PCCE seeks to help shape optimal enforcement policy, guide firms in developing more effective and robust compliance programs, and enhance education in the field of corporate compliance and enforcement. Each year, several students are accepted into the program, enabling them to gain unparalleled expertise in this area, both through courses and through access to leading practitioners. No other leading law school offers the same depth and breadth of courses by full-time faculty in this area.
