Creating and using slush funds is one of the most common white-collar crimes committed by corporations. In regards to such an act, the Korean court ruled that embezzlement is not merely creating slush funds but it is the arbitrary use of the money after the slush funds are created. There is much debate on whether such a judgment would narrow the range of penalties for embezzlement. In this presentation, Mr. Kim will examine how the U.S. courts deal with the creation and use of slush funds and consider whether there are references to criminal trials or legislation in Korea.

Lecture will be in Korean.

This event is exclusive to CKS Visiting Scholars, graduate/undergraduate students, and faculty.
