Jenner & Block Partner Andrew Weissmann will speak at a Georgetown Business Ethics Institute symposium entitled, “Corporate Criminality: Legal, Ethical and Managerial Implications,” to be held March 15 at the Georgetown University Law Center in Washington, DC.

Mr. Weissmann, the former Director of the Enron Task Force, will serve as a panelist at a discussion entitled, “Why Punish? Exploration of the Justification for and Standard of Corporate Criminal Liability,” which will discuss the current respondeat superior standard, the doctrine that holds an employer responsible for the actions of an employee during the "course of employment," the effects of applying the criminal sanction to corporations and alternative standards of liability, among other things.
