Public Lecture on “Deferred Prosecution Agreements and Our Common Law Heritage: Towards Legal Convergence?” by Professor Liz Campbell (12 Sept 2019)

This public lecture hosted by the Faculty of Law of The Chinese University of Hong Kong (“CUHK Law”) will be delivered by Professor Liz Campbell, Francine V McNiff Chair of Criminal Jurisprudence at Monash University, on 12 September 2019 at the CUHK Graduate Law Centre. The lecture seeks to examine how deferred prosecution agreements (DPAs) have been defined, developed, and deployed in different jurisdictions, in an effort to identify the extent to which this is shaped by the dominant model of criminal procedure (Damaska, 1973) in a given country. Although the classification of models of criminal process is complex and contested, it is still a novel and valuable lens through which to ascertain the operation and impact of DPAs and other non-trial resolutions. This lecture will look at whether their adoption is indicative of an organic convergence in the response to transnational white-collar and corporate crime (Freiberg, 2011).
