Notre Dame Law School Professor Jimmy Gurulé will give talks to academics, international financiers and law enforcement officials in India on U.S. efforts to prevent the funding of international terrorism.

The talks, sponsored by the U.S. State Department and scheduled for Oct. 6 to Oct. 21 in Pune, Mumbai, Delhi, and Calcutta, continue a series of similar presentations made by Gurulé last year in cities throughout Europe and South America. During his India tour, he will meet with members of the Institute for Defense Studies and Analysis, officials of the Central Economic Intelligence Bureau and U.S. Ambassador to India David Mulford. He also will meet with the director and faculty of India's National Institute of Bank Management, faculty at the Indira School of Management Studies, and to students and faculty of the Gopaldas Advani Law College.

A member of the Law School faculty since 1989, Gurulé is an expert in complex criminal litigation, anti-money laundering, criminal and scientific evidence, organized crime, and international criminal law. He has twice taken leaves of absence from the University to work for the United States government. From 2001 to 2003, he served as the treasury department's undersecretary for enforcement. From 1990 to 1992, he was assistant attorney general in the justice department's Office of Justice Programs.
