This one-day conference brought together academics, compliance officials, risk-management officers, general counsels, enforcement officials, and private attorneys to discuss principles of effective compliance, optimal compliance objectives, balancing the requirements of compliance programs with fundamental business objectives, and understanding both organizational structure and organizational behavior in achieving compliance with the law. From an enforcement perspective, the conference considered how enforcement policy can best be structured to support, promote, and reward effective corporate compliance efforts. The afternoon presentation, “ALI Principles of the Law, Compliance, Enforcement, and Risk Management for Corporations, Nonprofits and Other Organizations,” focused on the development of a comprehensive legal treatise on the laws of compliance, enforcement, risk management, and governance.
