During the first lecture students asked for some assessments topics to guide them in the decisions that they need to take. Please note that:
1 Students may still formulate their own topics and submit them for approval to the Unit Chair before 30 March 2010.
2 Students who choose one of the topics below, do not need to request approval and therefore do not need to submit their selected topic to the Unit Chair before that date.
Assessment topics (optional)
You may choose any of the following topics, or formulate your own topic:
1 Discuss the BAE/Al Yamamah corruption investigation by the UK Serious Fraud Office as an example of the challenges that arise in the context of high-level international political corruption.
2 Discuss ways to mitigate the impact of anti-money laundering and counter terrorist financing measures on financial inclusion in developing countries.
3 Evaluate the Financial Action Task Force's Recommendation 6 as a measure to combat corruption.
4 Identify a judgment where a corporation was convicted of an offence. Discuss the application of the legal principles in that particular matter.
5 Discuss the relationship between financial crime and the Global Financial Crisis.
