September 12, 2008 – 
The book Lying, Cheating, and Stealing: A Moral Theory of White-Collar Crime by Stuart P. Green, Professor of Law and Justice Nathan L. Jacobs Scholar at Rutgers School of Law–Newark, has been selected to receive the White-Collar Crime Research Consortium’s first annual Outstanding Publication Award. WCCRC seeks to promote increased public awareness of the impact and burden of white-collar crime on society through dedicated research. The book’s ground-breaking analysis of the relationship between morality and white-collar criminal law was previously recognized with a 2006 ABA Scribes/American Society of Legal Writers Book Award nomination. The WCCRC award will be presented at the annual meeting of the American Society of Criminology, which will be held November 12-15 in St. Louis, MO.

Porterie Professor of Law and had taught courses in criminal law and procedure, white collar crime, and legal ethics since 1995. His scholarship on topics such as corporate and white collar crime, criminal law codification, comparative criminal law, victims' rights, strict liability, justified homicide, plagiarism, and the criminal law’s Special Part has appeared in numerous books and journals. His works-in-progress include the books Thirteen Ways to Steal a Bicycle: Theft Law in the Information Age (under contract with Harvard University Press) and Philosophical Foundations of Criminal Law (with co-editor R.A. Duff) (under contract with Oxford University Press).
