Event discusses perspectives for combating corruption in Brazil
FGV’s Rio de Janeiro Law School (Direito Rio) will be promoting on April 8 the Perspectivas do Combate à Corrupção no Brasil (“Perspectives on Combating Corruption in Brazil”). The event, which integrates the course LL.M in Law: Compliance and marks the launch of the institution’s new lato sensu graduate course, will be held at FGV’s Candelária unit, in Rio’s Centro district.
The meeting will bring together the Minister of the Federal Attorney-General’s Office (AGU), André Luiz de Almeida Mendonça, the Secretary of the Fight against Corruption of the Federal Controller-General’s Office (CGU), João Carlos Figueiredo Cardoso, and guest professors of the LL.M in Law: Compliance, Claudio Carneiro and Salim Saud. At the event, a discussion will be held on how compliance programs can help prevent situations involving corruption.
FGV Direito Rio’s Lato Sensu Graduate Program Coordinator, Rafael Alves de Almeida explains that the new course LL.M in Law: Compliance is intended to provide theoretical and practical support to professionals who seek to expand their knowledge in the field of compliance, emphasizing the practices required by the Brazilian and international market.
“Compliance programs propose the adaptation of good practices of a transparent and responsible management, which end up inhibiting, among other issues, corruption practices. Currently, companies value integrity programs and develop codes of conduct, dedicating special importance to ethics and transparency in their actions and decisions. This care is taken to avoid deviations in corporate procedures,” said Almeida.
The “Perspectivas do Combate à Corrupção no Brasil” lecture is open to the public. Please visit the website for more information and to make your registration.
