This Research Handbook considers many varied aspects of corporate liability, beginning with a fundamental explanation of what the company is, through depictions of corporate liability in theory, and on to the key areas of liability in practice. While including a timeless distillation of the guiding principles, each contribution explores the emerging boundaries of corporate liability issues so as to bring understanding to new levels.

Cross-jurisdictional and interdisciplinary in nature, the contributions cover corporate and participant liability under statutory law, tort and criminal law, and corporate fiduciary and securities law. Specific perspectives include those on corporate vicarious liability, accountability for AI labour, and procedural law challenges. This Research Handbook examines not only the current state of play, but also predicts trends likely to feature in the development of corporate liability, including those in the areas of ESG and technology.

Featuring contributions from leading scholars in their respective fields, this Research Handbook will be essential reading for scholars and students of commercial law, corporate law, and corporate governance. It will also be beneficial for judges, legal practitioners, and policymakers specialising in corporate liability.
