Professor Corn joined the Criminal Division of the United States Department of Justice in 1996 through the Honors Graduate Program. He worked in the Narcotic and Dangerous Drug Section for several years, serving long term details at the United States Attorney’s Offices in the Eastern District of Virginia, the District of Arizona, the District of Massachusetts, and the District of Columbia. He also handled many investigations and prosecutions against high priority drug trafficking organizations as part of the Department’s Bilateral Case Initiative. Professor Corn later served in both the Organized Crime and Racketeering Section and the Computer Crime and Intellectual Property Section, handling both policy matters and criminal investigations and prosecutions. After serving as the Department’s Resident Legal Advisor to the Southeast European Cooperative Initiative’s Center for Combating Transborder Crime in Bucharest, Romania, Professor Corn began a U.S. initiative targeting Romanian-based cybercrime organizations that resulted in dozens of arrests and prosecutions both in the U.S. and abroad. Professor Corn was instrumental in creating the International Organized Crime Intelligence and Operations Center (IOC-2), where he has served both as Chief Counsel and Acting Director. Professor Corn graduated from Dickinson College in Carlisle, Pennsylvania, magna cum laude, and from the University of Virginia School of Law, Order of the Coif and a member of the Editorial Board of the Virginia Law Review. He clerked for the Honorable Jose A. Gonzalez, Jr., of the United States District Court in the Southern District of Florida from 1994 to 1996.
