Bankruptcy Crimes and Ethical Considerations CLE

The CLE will provide an overview of the basics of bankruptcy crimes and the role of the Office of the United States Trustee (“OUST”), the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and the Department of Justice in prosecuting those crimes. The program will also provide a summary of criminal referrals made by the OUST in 2016, some indicators and signs of bankruptcy crimes, as well as some examples of bankruptcy crime cases.
