    The second edition of The Law of Governance, Risk Management, and Compliance follows the first edition, as the first casebook focused on the law of governance, risk management, and compliance.

Miller, a highly respected professor of corporate and financial law, brings real world experience to the book as a member of the board of directors and audit and risk committees of a significant banking institution. The book addresses issues of fundamental importance for any regulated organization (the $13 billion settlement between JPMorgan Chase and its regulators is only one of many examples).  This book can be a cornerstone for courses on compliance, corporate governance, or on the role of attorneys in managing risk in organizational clients.
