Illinois is #2 in accounting, even better than their engineering school that I need to be close to. http://colleges.usnews.rankingsandreviews.com/best-colleges/rankings/business-accounting
Illinois Law is #41, Chicago is #4. Chicago is famous for Mafia and corrupt politicians (I went to high school with 1 of their offspring). https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chicago_Outfit
Probably a great place to study corruption related Laws. Professors always like to write articles and I got great material for a case on corruption.
The Law school is in Urbana, in the cornfields a 2 hour train ride from downtown Chicago. I am getting excited as I already know a lot about accounting, computers, business law, cyber security, etc. It will probably not be hard to learn the related laws. Much easier than math, especially as one gets older. Mostly just common sense and uses computer stuff well known 30 years ago. I may even go to work for the FBI after I get the appropriate credentials. I may even get a law degree and pass the bar exam.

Students will also explore emerging theories of corporate criminal liability and the principles undergirding the sanctions imposed for white collar crime.

Some students have found it helpful to complete the course in Business Associations I (Law 633) before taking this course.
