Christopher Christie - United States Attorney
Christopher J. Christie addressed 'Why Ethical Behavior Is Important in Corporate, Government and Public Institutions'.  As United States Attorney, Christopher J. Christie has overseen a number of criminal and civil prosecutions.   One of the most recent dramatic examples has been at the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey.  The scandal of UMDNJ’s purposeful over-billing of Medicaid led to an ongoing series of financial, management and personnel reforms required to avoid criminal prosecution for health care fraud under terms of a Deferred Prosecution Agreement.  UMDNJ is a striking example of an organization in which an underlying lack of strong ethical behavior appears to have permeated the senior levels of its management to a significant degree.  Having witnessed many examples of corporate fraud and ethical misbehavior and the negative consequences of these misdeeds, Mr. Christie understands why defining and ensuring the application of ethical behavior throughout the workplace is important.  Both sound ethical policies and the expectation of ethical behavior in the workplace are important for economic progress, social stability, and public trust in corporate, government and public institutions. 

Mr. Christie is a graduate of the University of Delaware, and Seton Hall University School of Law, where he received his Juris Doctor degree in 1987. Chris was admitted to the Bar of the State of New Jersey and the Bar of the United States District Court, District of New Jersey in 1987. From 1995 to 1997, Chris served as a Morris County Freeholder, and he was elected Director of the Board in 1997. He was nominated by President George W. Bush to be United States Attorney for the District of New Jersey on December 7, 2001. He was unanimously confirmed by the United States Senate on December 20, 2001 and sworn into office on January 17, 2002 by the Honorable Joel A. Pisano, U.S.D.J. Chris is in his fifth year as the chief federal law enforcement officer in the State of New Jersey.  He is in charge of a 139 lawyer operation with offices in Newark, Trenton, and Camden.  Chris served in 2004 and 2005 as one of seventeen U.S. Attorneys on Attorney General Gonzales' Advisory Committee. In 2004, Chris was named one of America's top ten prosecutors by the Corporate Crime Reporter.  Chris has been married to his wife Mary Pat for 20 years, and they are the parents of four children.
