Client Alert: What’s in a Name? That Which We Now Call the Justice Manual Has a Familiar, But Distinctive, Scent

On September 25, 2018, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein announced the rollout of the “Justice Manual” – a revised and renamed version of the US Attorneys’ Manual, a long-used reference for Department of Justice policies and procedures.  The most significant changes appear to be confined to anticipated codifications of well-publicized new policies (although one such policy was, puzzlingly, omitted).  But some other changes have not been previously addressed by Department leadership, and may provide insight into the Department’s mindset in light of recent events.

The client alert was recently republished by NYU Law's Program on Corporate Compliance and Enforcement.  Please click here to access the blog post.
