WATCH: 04 MARCH 2021. The launch by Justice James Edelman of two important new contributions to the law regulating serious commercial misconduct – Misleading Silence (Hart Publishing, Oxford 2020), edited by Professors Elise Bant and Jeannie Paterson, and Professor Bant’s Future Fellowship project, Unravelling Corporate Fraud.
The event is introduced by UWA Dean of Law, Professor Natalie Skead.
Misleading Silence (Hart Publishing, Oxford 2020), edited by Professors Elise Bant and Jeannie Paterson, brings together the insights of leading scholars on the spectrum, boundaries and roles of the private law norms and principles that seek to prevent, deter and remedy misleading conduct. The collection is a significant research achievement for Australian Research Council Discovery Project DP180100932 ‘Developing a Rational Law of Misleading Conduct’.
The event also marks the launch of this project, Professor Bant’s Future Fellowship FT190100475 on ‘Unravelling Corporate Fraud’. Drawing on lessons from the misleading conduct project, it aims to develop a new model for understanding and proving the elusive corporate state of mind. This is critical to holding large and complex corporations to account for serious commercial misconduct in modern commerce.
