A moderated discussion by School of Liberal Arts Dean Brian Edwards with authors, lawyers and executives, Sean Berkowitz (A&S '89) and Bethany McLean.
Sean Berkowitz is a former director of the Department of Justice's Enron Task Force. Berkowitz prosecuted former employees of Enron who were accused of white collar crimes, and was the lead prosecutor in the joint trial of Kenneth Lay and Jeffrey Skilling.
Bethany McLean is the co-author, with Fortune colleague Peter Elkind, of "The Smartest Guys in the Room," exposing the corrupt business practices of Enron officials. The book was later made into the Academy Award nominated documentary Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room.
