Author(s): Bharat Patel
Abstract: The emerging problem of corporate crime poses a serious threat to nations around the world. This issue is difficult to control as a result of the enormous benefit these crimes can yield in addition to the terrible certainty that the greater part of the culprits use a wide range of authority, being corporate entities with immense financial assets available to them. This paper details out the system of corporate criminal liability. The law has bound the courts to force just fine as a type of discipline for corporate which should be explained by advancing and fusing new types of disciplines upon the corporate with the end goal that the genuine reason for disciplines for example prevention or development, for example, fine or a punishment is accomplished. Corporate criminal liability has attracted several researchers and has been a subject of discourse on the growth and development of the criminal justice system in many jurisdictions. Hence, there is no deficiency of assets or past investigations that will feature both the methodology and hypothetical structure for the detailing and requirement of corporate criminal liability. The present criminal justice system is not sufficient to deal with these situations. There is need to define the criminality of corporations and lay down penal sanctions. This research paper has been taken as an effort to study the principles of corporate criminal liability and their penal aspects.
