Lecturer invited to speak at major Italian conference on business corruption

Dr Pierre de Gioia-Carabellese, senior lecturer in business law, from the School of Management and Languages has been invited to take part in the 'Supervisory Bodies: Internal Inquiries and Criminal Investigations' conference in Milan next month.

The conference, which will take place in mid-June, is organised by the 'associazione organismi di vigilanza', Italy's official body charged with fighting corruption among enterprises and businesses.

Dr de Gioia-Carabellese, who is qualified as a lawyer in both Scotland (Solicitor) and Italy (Avvocato), is the only panellist from a UK institution and his session will review the Bribery Act 2010 and in particular analyse the court decisions issued in the first 2 years of its application.

Other panellists include professors in law, the magistrate in charge of the Milan criminal tribunal, and an academic from Germany.

The conference is in both Italian and English.
