#27: AIJA seminar on anti-corruption in Brazil
On 23 and 24 March we attended the AIJA seminar on the challenges of Anti-Corruption in Brazil. The seminar presented a general overview and discussions on current topics of the anti-corruption legislation and compliance programs in different jurisdictions all over the world. Brazil was the perfect place to host this seminar, as Brazil has one of the largest ongoing anti-corruption investigations, also known as Operation Carwash as explained in Lawlunch #26. The ongoing criminal investigation is of such a scope that it is even ‘rewarded’ with a Netflix series called ‘The Mechanism’.
