Georgetown professor lectures to Yekaterinburg law students

Erin Sheley, a U.S. lawyer and legal professor at George Washington University, recently gave a lecture and initiated a discussion on corruption with law students in Yekaterinburg.

Sheley spoke at the Liberal Arts University about the history of corruption and anti-corruption in the U.S. She also described the U.S. legal system in general and answered numerous questions from the audience regarding the impacts of legislation on businesses and citizens.

The lectures gave the students a better understanding of the U.S. and its laws.

Sheley has been with GW Law as a visiting associate professor since 2012. She works in the fields of criminal law, criminal procedure and torts, with particular interest in how narrative impacts the individual and collective experience of criminal harm and the construction of social norms about culpability.
