We will explore how to set up the compliance office, including reporting lines, perform a state of the art risk assessment, including heat maps and dashboards, provide innovative training and effective auditing, monitoring and reporting of a compliance program. 

      We will focus on issue spotting and risk assessment, as well as the basics of project management to roll out an “effective” compliance program. You will learn to prioritize risks and understand how to evaluate best practices of companies in the pharmaceutical and financial industries. 

      Who Should Attend
      The workshop will benefit anyone interested in a career in global corporate compliance and ethics, including recent law school graduates, lawyers in transition, and non-lawyers interested in learning the legal aspects and practical requirements for a career in compliance. 

      It is also appropriate for general counsel and other in-house counsel, compliance and ethics officers and members of the compliance and ethics department, as well as members of the internal audit, enterprise risk management and human resources departments, outside counsel and consultants involved in advising on compliance and ethics.
