Welcome to LawShelf’s video-course on white-collar crime. In this course, we’ll focus on the criminal laws that relate to crimes that typically don’t feature violence or force. We will look at some of the many categories of these crimes that are punished on the federal and state levels.

This is an intermediate level course. If you have no experience or knowledge of law or criminal justice, it is recommended that you first view our course on the basics of criminal law before this one.

Module one is an overview of white-collar crimes and how they are punished. We'll look at the distinction between corporate liability and personal liability for criminal actions. Then, we look at the common denominators of theft and fraud crimes, which, though there are many, are more alike than they are different. We’ll look at how fraud is punished and at various types of fraud such as mail fraud, wire fraud, bank fraud, computer fraud and securities fraud.
