May 20, 2014 – The University of Houston Law Center is hosting its third annual Ethics & Compliance Symposium June 13 to provide practical advice about real-world challenges that face ethics and compli­ance officers today.

This year’s conference focuses on the fundamentals of a compliance program from the perspective of the board of directors.

The day-long, CLE symposium will feature an impressive number of ethics and compliance professionals from a diverse range of industries who will share not only their expertise but their hands-on experiences in a series of presentations and panels.  Speakers include Jim Doty, chairman of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board; Daniel Trujillo, chief compliance officer for Walmart International; and Andy Hinton, chief compliance officer for Google.

In addition, UH Law Center will share data from its empirical Code of Conduct database throughout the day, which will show how Fortune 500 companies are addressing topics such as facilitation payments, data privacy, social media and political contributions.
