The Prosecution of Professor Roth and Its Aftermath
Item SKU: ROTH2011
No export enforcement case in recent memory has sparked more attention and controversy than the government's prosecution of former University of Tennessee Professor J. Reece Roth. Roth's criminal prosecution, conviction and appeals have raised serious questions about the application of U.S. export controls to university research, deemed exports, government contracts, the meaning of knowledge and willfulness, the hiring of foreign students and employees and what constitutes public information. This 90-minute briefing features expert speakers who will provide you with first-hand answers to your questions about this case and how to be sure your export compliance program prevents the mistakes that Roth made. Our speakers are Will Mackie, Assistant U.S. Attorney, U.S. Department of Justice, Eastern District of Tennessee (Knoxville); J. Patrick Rowan, Partner, McGuire Woods; and Jahna Hartwig, Partner, Williams Mullen. To order a CD recording of the briefing along with all slides used by the speakers, click Add to Cart above.
