He graduated magna cum laude in 1985 from Georgetown University Law Center, where he served as a notes and comments editor on the Georgetown Law Journal. After graduation, he taught in the College of Business Administration at Loyola Marymount University and then clerked for Chief Judge Murray M. Schwartz of the U.S. District Court for the District of Delaware. After clerking, Henning was a senior attorney in the Division of Enforcement at the U.S. Securities & Exchange Commission, where he worked on cases involving insider trading, penny stock fraud, market manipulation and accounting irregularities. He then moved to the Criminal Division of the U.S. Department of Justice, where he worked in the Fraud Section on the investigation and prosecution of bank fraud. During this time he also published articles in the Kansas Law Review, St. Louis University Law Journal and American Criminal Law Review.

Henning teaches courses in Corporations, White Collar Crime, Professional Responsibility & the Legal Profession, Criminal Law, Criminal Procedure, Criminal Pretrial Advocacy and Securities Regulation. He taught previously at the high school and university undergraduate levels. In 2013, he was a Fulbright Scholar teaching at the University of Zagreb in Croatia.

Gordon Award for Excellence in Teaching, which is presented by the alumni of the Law School.

Henning’s scholarship focuses primarily on white collar crime, constitutional criminal procedure and attorney ethics. Recent articles have been published in the Washington University Journal of Law & Policy, the Wayne Law Review, the University of Chicago Legal Forum, Ohio State Law Journal, American Criminal Law Review and Georgetown Journal of Legal Ethics.

white collar online support group celebrates 100th meeting april 16 2018 white collar support group

If you, a friend, family member, colleague or client are experiencing a white collar or other nonviolent criminal justice issue, Progressive Prison Ministries hosts a confidential online white-collar/nonviolent support group on Monday evenings, 7 to 8:15 pm Eastern, 6 to 7:15 pm Central, 5 to 6:15 pm Mountain, 4 to 5:15 pm Pacific.
This is the first confidential white-collar/ nonviolent online support group in the United States. This is a huge step in forming a community of individuals and families with white-collar and nonviolent incarceration issues.
Our experience shows us that many of us are suffering in silence with shame, remorse, and deep regret. Many of us have been stigmatized by our own families, friends and communities, and the business community. Our goal is to learn and evolve into a new spiritual way of life centered on hope, care, compassion, tolerance and empathy, and then to reach out to offer all those suffering from these issues. In so doing, we share our experiences, feelings and resources to help make the quality of each other’s lives more manageable. More info:
