Interactive Case Studies And Resources For The Classroom

500 Pearl Street provides insights into today’s white-collar crime cases and the challenges and consequences associated with it. This new, innovative approach brings the headlines, and the people in those headlines, into the modern classroom.
Today’s financial markets and the crimes that spawn from them are complex. Journalists who cover these cases rarely investigate white-collar crime to a level that allows readers to not only understand the issues that lead to the violation, but also learn steps that will prevent it. We want to change that and bring our experts into the classroom with stories that are in the headlines today. Walt Pavlo has been a guest lecturer at over 100 universities since 2003. His case gained the attention of the Federal Bureau of Investigations as it was forming the Enron and WorldCom task forces that were assembled to combat corporate crime. While being a part of training at the FBI Academy, Pavlo set out to spread the message of his own cautionary tale. After nine years of speaking about his own crime, he is bringing his experience and contacts into a program that is specifically designed to educate and facilitate learning for tomorrow’s business leaders.

500 Pearl Street is the address of the federal courthouse in downtown Manhattan (New York, NY), which has been the backdrop of major whitecollar cases ranging from Martha Stewart to Bernard Madoff. Most recently, it was the courthouse where people accused of insider trading were prosecuted under US Attorney Preet Bharara. The lights are flashing and cameras rolling as prosecutors, defense lawyers and defendants all parade in and out of one of the most famous courthouses in the country. Decisions made here have an impact on business, regulation and policy around the country.
