Overview

Prosecuting financial crimes, human trafficking, and cybercrimes often involves bringing together multiple people, often across many departments (and multiple jurisdictions), which can pose a variety of challenges. The covered material will be of interest to prosecutors, criminal justice personnel, judges, attorneys, and academics, specifically in developing economies where these crimes are emerging or may pose a particular threat. Drawing from the U.S. prosecutorial experience, this seminar will integrate the selected topics through class discussion. Participants will engage in in-depth study of each crime through discussion while developing their skills. More generally, the seminar will focus on the investigation, preparation, prosecution and required professional and technical skills in the context of these crimes.

Additionally, the seminar covers the institutional arrangements, such as working with the police, judges, and other relevant institutions and agencies at national and transnational levels. Moreover, the relevant legislation and recommended means of implementation and lessons learned will be discussed in the seminar.
