CJR-350: White Collar Crime and Public Corruption

3 credit hours

This course will explore how the public suffers when elite offenders use white-collar crime to gain and sustain wealth, social status, and political influence. Unlike street crime, typically committed by the poor and disempowered, the sorts of criminal schemes executed by the wealthy are not as easily detected, prosecuted, or punished. This is not just a failure of law enforcement, it is also a social justice issue. This course can be used to satisfy University Studies requirements.
