Course: Criminal Law

Corporate crime refers to criminal activities that corporations or other business organizations commit.


Corporate crime can take many forms, including fraud, embezzlement, price fixing, environmental offenses, and violations of consumer protection laws.

Corporate crime can be committed by individuals acting on behalf of the corporation, or it can be the result of the policies or practices of the corporation itself. In some cases, corporate crime is motivated by the desire to increase profits or gain an advantage over competitors, while in other cases it may be the result of negligence or a lack of oversight.
