Towards global corporate criminal liability?
Wednesday 11 October (1430 - 1730)
As countries around the world try to improve business behaviour with ever tougher legal and regulatory requirements, this session will explore whether global exposure to criminal liability is becoming a reality for corporates and what may be coming next in this area. We will cover multijurisdictional liability and how to manage exposure to it, whether existing compensation regimes are sufficiently focused on the victims of corporate misconduct, and the impact of human rights law on business behaviour.
