Jordan Belfort shot to notoriety with the release of the Martin Scorsese film The Wolf of Wall Street.
Convicted in 1999 of securities fraud and money laundering, he served 22 months in jail and was ordered to pay restitution for his crimes. Thane Rosenbaum leads a discussion with Belfort, former Asst. U.S. Attorney Daniel Alonso and CNBC’s “Closing Bell” co-anchor Kelly Evans about the law, business and culture of Wall Street and what happens—or should happen—when laws governing the public market for securities are violated.
Application for New York State CLE accreditation of this program is currently pending.
