Sen. Paul Sarbanes (D-MD, 1977-2006) co-sponsored the historic Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX) Act in 2002.

Where does the law stand today?
How has it affected the accounting profession?

Sen. Sarbanes gives a behind-the-scenes account of drafting this groundbreaking law and discusses the driving force behind it.
