Course Description

This session is about Law or the Legal Elements of Fraud. As a CFE candidate, you must have familiarity with the many legal ramifications of conducting fraud examinations. Examples of areas included are civil and criminal law, rules of evidence, the rights of the accused and the accuser, and expert witness matters. The ACFE, however, does not expect you to be a law expert.

Fraud examination is a law-intensive field. The related legal issues are often complicated. Interpreting law might require legal professionals, so if there are legal questions during your fraud examination, consult with a legal advisor. Remember, your investigation's success depends on you following the proper legal procedures, whether you are dealing with a suspect's rights, collecting documents, or interviewing a witness. As a CFE, your work will be subject to scrutiny. Therefore, you must be meticulous in all its stages, including communicating your work results.

Remember, though, that ACFE will not ask you complicated questions in the Law section. The ACFE will only test you on general matters.

In case you would want to do some practice tests, I have created a course for you. This course will be a simulation of the CFE examination and will test you on all four sections. Please email me if you are interested so I can give you the link. I sometimes provide codes to access the materials for free. Alternatively, you can join us in our Discord Forum. If you are interested, email me at [email protected] so I can send you the link.
