    Abstract

    Corporate criminal liability is a relatively new development in American law, although it has been expanding rapidly. We argue that there is no need for corporate criminal liability in a legal system with appropriate civil remedies and that corporate criminal liability in practice produces serious problems of overdeterrence. Copyright 1996 by the University of Chicago.
