Federal White Collar Crime
(West 7th Ed. 2018) by Julie R. O'Sullivan
This law school casebook addresses substantive and procedural areas of importance in white-collar criminal practice. The book covers a variety of substantive crimes, including perjury, false statements, false claims, obstruction of justice, mail and wire fraud, public corruption, insider trading, conspiracy, Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) Act violations, and money laundering. Chapters covering entity liability, the federal sentencing guidelines, and mens rea issues also address substantive law questions. The book then tackles procedural issues critical to white-collar practice such as grand jury, discovery, the Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination as applied to testimony and physical evidence, the attorney-client privilege, representation issues, plea bargaining and cooperation agreements, and parallel proceedings. The materials emphasize practical and ethical issues facing criminal law practitioners. An extensive teaching manual is available through West or through contact with the author, Professor O'Sullivan.
