Course Aims:

This podcast will outline the key provisions of the Bribery Act 2010. Monty Raphael, editor of ‘Blackstone’s Guide to the Bribery Act’ (published August 2010, OUP) will look at the background to the Act and consider which shortcomings of the previous law that the Act aims to address. Monty will outline the law that is being superseded by the Act; he will also highlight criticism of the old law and concerns with the UK’s anti-corruption policy and its implementation in practice. Monty will consider the US Foreign Corrupt Practices Act 1977. Monty will also highlight the key concerns posed by the Act for the UK businesses and the approach to the enforcement of the Act prosecutors are likely to take.
