ELSA is launching a new a Legal Research Group on the topic of a European Corporate Compliance in cooperation with K&L Gates, one of the world leading law firms. The questions of the LRG focus on outlining the relevant rules as well as assessing what the ramifications are for breaking them. The final thing that this project aims to cover is the measures that authorities can exercise to ensure that the law is not broken and who within each legal system has the power to exercise such authority. The findings of the research will be compiled in a final report to be published by ELSA and K&L Gates.
