Corporate Criminal Liability: A Comparative Review

City University of Hong Kong Law Review. 2010. Vol. 2. No. 1. P. 173-192.
This Note is devoted to the analysis of corporate criminal liability in the contemporary criminal law of different jurisdictions. It outlines the development of this aspect of criminal law in different legal systems, and reviews the common principles upon which the criminal liability of corporations is based today. Special emphasis is placed on the provisions of the English Corporate Manslaughter and Corporate Homicide Act 2007. The Note concludes that holding corporations criminally liable is justified considering the role they play as a separate legal entity in the society.
