Since it was enacted into law in 1938, the Foreign Agents Registration Act (“FARA”) has been amended 10 times, with the most significant overhaul occurring in 1966. 2015 saw enforcement of FARA by the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) rise to unprecedented levels.

In 2019, the International Law Section of the American Bar Association (ABA) established a Task Force made up of former FARA enforcement officials, who are now advisers on compliance, academics, non-profits and think tanks. The objective of the Task Force was to explore possible reforms to the statute, including Changes to the FARA administration and prosecutions.

Late last month the ABA’s Task Force released its report entitled, “FARA: Issues And Recommendations For Reform”. The Co-Chairs of ABA’s task force will shed a light on the contents and recommendations of the report and the webinar will be moderated by the Counsel to the FARA Task Force.

ACI invites you to join a highly anticipated, complimentary webinar on November 9th at 1pm (EST) to unpack the Task Force’s almost two dozen recommendations.
