Leonard Orland is Oliver Ellsworth Research Professor of Law at the University of Connecticut School of Law, where he teaches courses in criminal law and procedure, distributive justice, and post-conviction sentencing. As a well-regarded expert on white collar crime, he has served as a member of a parole board, as adviser and reporter for the Sentencing Institute for the United States Court of Appeals for the First and Second Circuits, and as an adviser to the National Conference of Commissioners of Uniform Sate Laws. He now serves as chairman of the board of the Federal Bar Council, and he has participated in the Federal Courts Study Committee and, as Ford Foundation Scholar, has examined criminal justice systems in Europe and Asia. His many writings include Prisons: Houses of Darkness and a leading casebook on corporate criminal liability. He has been a visiting professor at the Free University of Berlin; the University of Exeter; Cambridge University; Beijing University; Jagiellonian University in Cracow; and the Max Planck Institute for Foreign and International Criminal Law in Freiburg, Germany. His new book, A Final Accounting: Holocaust Survivors and Swiss Banks, published this year by Carolina Academic Press, describes how New York's courts processed claims for funds left in Swiss financial institutions despite the difficulties posed by secretive Swiss banking laws.
