Description: This course provides a practical introduction to U.S. economic sanctions and to the U.S. Department of  Treasury's Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC), which administers U.S. economic sanction regulations. You will learn about the various types of economic sanctions imposed by the United States on certain countries, individuals, businesses, and other entities. Our faculty panel will explain how the sanctions operate and will review licensing procedures and exceptions. Enforcement and voluntary disclosures for violations of sanctions will be discussed. Our faculty will use actual cases and hypothetical scenarios to illustrate how economic sanctions would apply to financial institutions, multinational companies, and others.
