For Immediate Release

Brantford – Wilfrid Laurier University will host a lecture with Russell Mokhiber titled, “20 Things You Should Know About Corporate Crime.” Mokhiber, a visiting scholar in Laurier’s Department of Criminology, will deliver his lecture at Laurier’s Brantford campus Feb. 28 at 7 p.m. in Room 206 of the Carnegie Building.

Mokhiber is the founder, editor and publisher of Corporate Crime Reporter, the only newsweekly covering corporate crime. He’s also the author and co-author of a number of books, including Corporate Crime and Violence: Big Business Power and the Abuse of the Public Trust (Sierra Club Books, 1988) and On the Rampage: Corporations Plundering the Global Village (Common Courage Press, 2004).

“This is a wonderful opportunity for students and the community to hear about Russell Mokhiber’s work exposing and reporting on corporate crime and violence,” said Dan Antonowicz, associate professor in the Department of Criminology. “For the past 30 years, he has been relentless in his coverage of corporate wrongdoing.”

In 2017, Mokhiber was invited to be visiting scholar in criminology at Laurier. His articles on corporate crime and violence have been published widely, including in CounterPunch, The New York Times, Los Angeles Times, Washington Post and Harper's. He graduated from the Antioch School of Law (JD) in 1979 and George Washington University (BA) in 1976.

The lecture is free and open to the public. For more information, visit Laurier’s calendar of events.
