Corporate Manslaughter and the Law: What Message to Industry?

  • Maria Victoria Moloney

Student thesis: Doctoral ThesisDoctor of Philosophy


The main concern of this study is the examination of the legal issues surrounding the problem of the large number of deaths caused by corporations with particular emphasis on the need to isolate an effective legal message for industry in relation to safety. This will involve looking at the way the law has approached the topic in the relatively short time it has been challenging the legal consciousness and the overall lack of success achieved, which left a major legal lacuna surrounding this area of law. The resulting legal message to date has not commanded industry's attention or respect.
