Trapped: When Acting Ethically Is Against The Law

This lucid critique of the current state of white-collar criminal law demonstrates that corporate lawyers and managers must often choose between acting ethically and acting legally. John Hasnas describes the erosion of traditional mens rea requirements and 5th Amendment protections in federal law and suggests that some recent aggressive prosecutions of corporations and their officers have serious moral costs.
