The program will discuss Cartel enforcement in a global world, including:
1. Basic cartel law in Japan and Korea, with comparisons to the US. For example,
  • Whether JFTC or KFTC can enforce both criminally and non-criminally (civil), and the frequency of criminal enforcement;
  • Whether the law reaches individuals, as well as companies;
  • The operation of corporate leniency programs, or other forms of enforcement discretion;
  • Sanctions available, and the range of sanctions that tend to be imposed.
  • Compare to US and discuss current US criminal enforcement priorities. How does US DOJ decide whether to proceed criminally or with a civil case.
2. The agency investigation and case-filing process, and its resolution. For example,
  • Proceedings to develop facts: access to documents and witness statements;
  • Pre-charging involvement of companies under investigation, internal agency review and the charging decision;
  • For Japan and Korea, the role of the courts.
  • The of role of the grand jury in US investigation
3. Enforcement relationships around the world 
  • Interaction with government enforcers in other jurisdictions;
  • Confidentiality and information sharing with foreign enforcers 
  • Extradition (of current interest in view of the US DOJ’s recent extradition of participant in the marine hose conspiracy).
4.  Interaction with the civil litigation system seeking to provide victim recovery.
