The TC Beirne School of Law proudly presents Corporate Liability and Compliance, the November offering in its Continuing Professional Development seminar series.

Held in conjunction with the Basel Institute on Governance and Transparency International – Australia, this one-day seminar addresses the past, present and future of corporate criminal liability law ahead of the G20 Summit in Brisbane.

Switzerland’s Gemma Aiolfi shares her extensive experience in compliance, integrity risk management and collective action, whilst Sydney’s Jane Ellis contributes a local perspective as a director of one of Australia’s leading anti-corruption NGOs.

Together, the facilitators review key common and civil law approaches to corporate accountability for crime and reflect on the likely development of this area of regulation. The implications for multinational companies, their board members and employees are considered from a transnational perspective. Through group work and discussion, participants engage with the challenges of implementing effective systems for compliance.

The seminar is timed to coincide with the launch of Corruption, Asset Recovery and the Protection of Property in Public International Law: The Human Rights of Bad Guys (Cambridge University Press, 2014) by UQ’s own Dr Radha Ivory.

This event is accredited for CPD purposes by the Queensland Bar Association (Code: UQ141106). Participants will accrue 1 CPD point per hour of attendance in the non-allocated strand unless otherwise advised.
