Carolan on the Irish Approach to Criminalizing Corporate Killing

Bruce Carolan (Dublin Institute of Techhology) has posted Criminalizing Corporate Killing: The Irish Approach (Stetson Law Review, Vol. 41, p. 157, 2011) on SSRN. Here is the abstract:

The debate on criminal corporate liability in the United States might benefit from a comparative perspective: How have other countries treated the criminal liability of corporate entities? This benefit might be enhanced by focusing on a country with a similar legal heritage to the United States — a country with a common law legal system inherited from the British. And, it would help if that country were concurrently examining the issue of criminal corporate liability. Interesting questions might include: What issues dominate the debate? How are issues of punishment, reparations, and rehabilitation handled? Is a legislative approach contemplated? The purpose of this Article is to offer one such alternate perspective, the Irish perspective.
