Taslitz on the Reciprocal Responsibility of Corporations to Accept Criminal Liability under Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission

Taslitz, Andrew E. - Howard University SoLAndrew E. Taslitz (Howard University - School of Law) has posted Reciprocity and the Criminal Responsibility of Corporations (Stetson Law Review, Vol. 41, 2011) on SSRN. Here is the abstract:
