Participants may earn CLE credit and a Certificate of Completion in Anti-Corruption Legal Studies listing each course successfully completed, based on class participation and a take-home exam.  Participants may register for one or more of the four classes offered.  Taken together, they provide a comprehensive grounding in current anti-corruption law topics.
