The criminal liability of legal entities in Canon Law and Italian Law

Please note that the job is no longer active!

The research will deal with the criminal liability of legal entities with a particular reference to the legal system of the Catholic Church. The research will start from the romanistic heritage and reaches up to the denial of the criminal liability of legal entities during the Nineteenth Century. In the second part, the research will proceed along three routes of inquiry. The first will involve the study of the criminal liability of legal entities in Canon Law. In the second, after having illustrated the Italian provisions on criminal and administrative liability of legal entities (Legislative Decree no. 231 of 2001), it will consider their applicability to the Catholic ecclesiastical entities. The third one will concern the issue of the liability of legal entities in the State of Vatican City, also in relation to recent developments in the field of financial crimes.

Please note that the full description may be available in the national language since some job boards have their own publication policy. Thank you for your understanding!
