Corporate Criminal Enforcement in the United States

19.05.2017 09:30 - English

Using Negotiated Settlements to Turn Corporate Criminals In to Corporate Cops. With Jennifer Arlen, Professor of Law and Co-Director of the Program on Corporate Compliance and Enforcement, NYU Law.

Bergen Resource Centre for International Development and
LawTransform, invites you to join this breakfast seminar on corporate crime with Professor

Jennifer Arlen

Professor Arlen is founder and director of the Program on Corporate Compliance and Enforcement at New York University School of Law.

Corporate crime in the US differs fundamentally from other countries in two ways. First, the U.S. has the broadest provisions governing when corporations can be held criminally liable. Second, U.S. prosecutors have wide discretion to enter into criminal settlements that impose criminal sanctions without formally convicting the firm.

Arlen will discuss the benefits and pitfalls of laws providing for broad corporate liability coupled with discretion, and lessons for other countries considering such measures.

Jon Petter Rui
, Professor at the Law Faculty (UiB), will comment on the Norwegian context and legal principles more generally.

Tea, coffee and croissants will be served.
