The more the world becomes a global village, the greater the need for certain types of law to have global effect. Such law includes human rights law,international trade law, and the law of corporate crime. Corporate crime commonly runs across national boundaries. In order to be effectively addressed by the law, such crime needs to be subject to a uniformlegal regulation across multifarious jurisdictions. In order for that to happen,the approach of the various jurisdictions needs to enjoy a greater coalescence of jurisprudence. The new approach to corporate manslaughter in the UK has several merits and demerits from which other jurisdictions can learn.
