This year, the Northwestern University Law Review presents a symposium on Fraud and the Erosion of Trust, which brings together scholars of history, sociology, economics, psychology, business, and corporate and consumer fraud with a diverse array of practitioners to explore the most effective ways to redress the rise in fraud and accompanying decline in public trust.

Key inquiry

  • Has widespread fraud so significantly undermined trust in individuals, government, and market institutions that American society is confronting a reckoning?
  • If so, what are the best policies and approaches to reduce misrepresentation and deceit to less disruptive levels and thus reconstitute versions of trust and trustworthiness that make sense in the interconnected 21st century?

The Symposium is approved for 4.75 general CLE credit hours in the state of Illinois and will be held in person and broadcast virtually.
