Brickey on Corporate Criminal Liability

Brickey kathleenKathleen F. Brickey (Washington University in Saint Louis - School of Law) has posted Perspectives on Corporate Criminal Liability on SSRN. Here is the abstract:

The principle that corporations can be held criminally responsible for crimes committed on their behalf has been well established in Anglo-American law for more than a century. After exploring the historical and theoretical underpinnings of this phenomenon together with the deterrent and retributive rationales for imposing criminal liability on corporations, this article examines Justice Department policies regarding the prosecution and punishment of corporate crime and how those policies are implemented in practice.
