Why You Should Attend
After a brief hiatus, this year’s Audit Committees program has received a total facelift, reimagining the way lawyers, accounting professionals, and board members learn about the trends and developments pertaining to internal investigations. This program is designed to help improve your understanding of the nuances of what is required of audit committees and special committees, and those who advise them.
New this year is the four-part, in-depth examination of internal investigations. Utilizing a real-world case study, attendees will be able to investigate and gain insight on how internal investigations are approached from multiple perspectives: the board of directors, the outside counsel, the forensic accountant, and the regulators and auditors. By studying the internal investigation from each perspective, the faculty will provide a well-rounded program on what professionals need to know when dealing with audit committees, special committees, and internal investigations.
