This course aims
to train students to identify investigative needs, practical tools and sources
of information, and tools necessary to plan and execute effective financial
investigations. We will begin with a description of the basic composition of
elements within illicit financial networks and their vulnerabilities. We will
then move through the role of critical actors operating within these networks
and their efforts to manipulate legitimate financial and business systems.
Course material will describe government, regulatory, and investigative
activities within the United States and international partners that empower not
only financial investigations, but also the structures to detect and report
illicit actors and networks' actions. The course will discuss considerations for
investigation planning and promotion of creative thinking.
