25th June 2012: University Bribery Act Masterclass

Print Friendly

On 25 June 2012 from 2.30pm-5pm in our London office we are pleased to announce that we shall be hosting a masterclass in anti-bribery & corruption for the UK University Sector.


“To achieve and retain their present standing British universities have no alternative but to compete internationally for students, funding and academics from all over the world”

“This scale of global operation carries ethical and reputational risk, and requires an infrastructure to protect the core principles of any university which is operating on a more expansive and international market. These changes in the nature of the world in which universities operate and are resourced mean that some…are now operating on a scale comparable to that of a global company.”

This quote is an extract from the Woolf Report entitled: “An inquiry into the London School of Economics links with Libya and lessons to be learned.”

No ordinary Bribery Act seminar

In this highly practical session you will hear about the general challenges faced by those operating in the University Sector & how to deal with them.

We will cover specific hot button areas to focus on including the recruitment of students internationally, soliciting donations and risks related to the commercial arms of Universities.

We’ll also look at what practical steps Universities should consider taking to comply with the Bribery Act and what you might do differently when you get back to your office.

The session will focus on the practical realities of the University Sector, the risks it faces and importantly practical tips on managing those risks to an acceptable level.

The masterclass will run on the Chatham House Rule.

Attendance is free but places will be limited.
