The most effective way to achieve corporate compliance is to have individuals comply with the law. The reality, however, is that punishing misconduct, a reactive model, is the common methodology used to attain future legal compliance. Focusing more resources on the front end and using a pro-active model to achieve compliance would keep the corporate structure whole and yet also provide a sound basis for eradicating corporate criminality. This Essay proposes that an education model be implemented, with the government more actively participating in promoting compliance with the law.
