Jennifer Arlen on Overseas Deferred-Prosecution Agreements

Jennifer Arlen, professor of law at New York University, joins the Business Scholarship Podcast to discuss her recent paper The Potential Promise and Perils of Introducing Deferred Prosecution Agreements Outside the U.S. In this paper, Arlen examines recent British and French efforts to introduce U.S.-style DPAs in corporate enforcement. She explains that although these efforts offer rule-of-law improvements over the U.S. approach, they are not yet fully aligned to helping prosecutors detect and deter corporate misconduct.
