LAW 2726 - Organized Crime and the Response of Government

Utilizing the Port of New York as its theater, this course will study attempts by government to control Organized Crime. The course will study the origins of Organized Crime in the United States, its influence in the Port of New York, why the longshore trade and the longshore trade Unions are susceptible to its influence, and the various responses by government to such susceptibility - focusing on the Waterfront Commission Act, the administrative and regulatory effectuation of this Act by the Waterfront Commission of New York Harbor, and the Racketeer Influence and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO). Students will be challenged to analyze the success and failure of these laws and regulations, and to craft alternative legislative and regularity solutions to the problems that the existing laws and regulations were implemented to combat.
