Abstract

This is a brief and informal discussion of some issues related to corporate criminal liability arising in recent cases. It expands on my remarks in connection with the University of Maryland School of Law's Roundtable on the Criminalization of Corporate Law, drawing on my recent commentary on this subject, primarily on my weblog.
