A global trend: The introduction of Deferred Prosecution Agreement regimes across the World

Stéphane de Navacelle spoke at the International Law Section Annual Conference hosted by the American Bar Association.

 

Stéphane de Navacelle participated at the International Law Section Annual Conference hosted by the American Bar Association, Thursday 28 April at 11:00 am (UTC−8) in Washington DC, to talk about jurisdictions across the globe that have been reforming their corporate criminal liability frameworks to introduce deferred prosecution agreements (DPAs). The USA, the United Kingdom, France, Canada and Singapore allow corporate entities to enter into DPAs, but not all of these countries have done so to date.

The purpose of this panel was to compare and contrast these procedural tools and consider the potential improvements to encourage their use, including ways to improve their interaction with individual guilty pleas.
