Join the Vanderbilt Criminal Justice Program, the Law and Business Program, the Criminal Law Association, the Law and Business Society and retired DOJ Fraud Section Executive Deputy Chief John Arterberry ’73 as we welcome Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Jesse Eisinger to the law school for a talk about his new book, The Chicken**** Club: Why the Justice Department Fails to Prosecute Executives, on October 17 to Flynn Auditorium.

Eisinger’s new book is a blistering account of corporate greed and impunity, and the reckless, often anemic response from the Department of Justice. Why were no bankers put in prison after the financial crisis of 2008? Why do CEOs seem to commit wrongdoing with impunity? The problem goes beyond banks deemed ‘Too Big to Fail’ to almost every large corporation in America—to pharmaceutical companies and auto manufacturers and beyond. The Chicken**** Club—an inside reference to prosecutors too scared of failure and too daunted by legal impediments to do their jobs—explains why.
