Dissecting the anatomy of corporate culpability in law, for the benefit of humanity.
Unravelling Corporate Fraud aims to examine and re-model the complex and ineffectual laws that currently allow corporations committing commercial fraud to evade justice. The research focuses on the fundamental problem that corporations do not process a natural ‘state of mind’ in the same way as individuals. This makes it difficult to hold them liable for serious misconduct that is dependent on proof of a blameworthy mental state. The project, supported by the ARC and UWA, will have real impact on the just and efficient regulation of corporations, for the benefit of all Australians.
The Perth Casino Royal Commission has tabled their final report in Parliament. The report, which cites Professor Elise Bant at several points, includes 59 recommendations to facilitate remediation work rather than a stripping of the licence.
