The Toronto Group is a collaboration between graduate students at Osgoode Hall Law School and the Faculty of Law at the University of Toronto. Our upcoming 2019 event will be our 12th conference. The Toronto Group aims to create a forum for graduate students and early career academics to disseminate their research and engage with a broad international community of scholars. Our areas of focus include legal, social and political theory; public and private international law; and constitutional law and politics. Every year, we hold a major conference in Toronto, Ontario.
On behalf of the members of the Belmont Criminal Law Journal, we write to inform you of an upcoming symposium regarding “White Collar Crime in the 21st Century: When Corporations and Individuals Collide.” This year’s symposium will consider, among other things, the tensions that can develop between the interests of a corporation and the interests of an individual during a white collar criminal investigation and how these conflicts impact the representation of each party.
