The Culpable Corporate Mind

The Culpable Corporate Mind

Edited by Elise Bant

This collection shows how restrictive and complex rules on attributing individual agents’ intentions and knowledge to the artificial person are rendering them not fit for purpose. Many traditional common law and equitable doctrines seek to prohibit and remedy commercial fraud. However, these concepts tend to demand high levels of proof of personal dishonesty or culpability on the part of defendants.

Experts from private law, criminal law, and corporate law suggest what form this much needed reform should take. The collection looks at equity and tort law as well as exploring specific sectors such as the pharmaceutical industry and the digital field.

Elise Bant is Professor of Private Law and Commercial Regulation at The University of Western Australia and Professorial Fellow at Melbourne Law School, The University of Melbourne, Australia.
