Public Corruption Prosecution After McDonnell

The landmark case McDonnell v. United States, 136 S. Ct. 2355 (2016), altered the legal landscape in which federal and state prosecutors can pursue public corruption prosecutions. This symposium, held at Elisabeth Haub School of Law on March 9, 2018, brought together law enforcement, practitioners, academics, and media to gain insight from these disparate groups.
