Professor Boyne Presents Scholarship in Canterbury, England
Professor Shawn Boyne recently presented her work titled, "Translating Civil Law Objectivity with an Adversarial Brain," at the interdisciplinary conference Comparative Law: Engaging Translation. The conference, which included faculty members from Hong Kong, France, Romania, England, Germany, Ireland, Denmark, and The Netherlands was held at Kent Law School, Canterbury, England on June 20-21, 2012. The conference proceedings will be published in a book forthcoming from Routledge Press.
Prior to attending the conference, Professor Boyne spent several days in London interviewing British barristers who defend fraud and corruption cases. Boyne's research on the UK's Bribery Act of 2010 seeks to examine the degree of corporate compliance with the new regulations and barriers to enforcement. This research trip was funded by Indiana University's Office of the Vice-President for International Affairs.
