CfP: National Seminar on Corporate Fraud & Regulatory Challenges @ CUSAT, Kochi [Jan 17-19]: Submit by Dec 5

About the Seminar

Corporate world is susceptible to various kinds of fraud and scams including cyber, accounting and financial frauds. Fraud is a deliberate act committed to deprive a person or institution of property or money through unfair means. Corporate fraud is committed by corporate managers, directors, professionals and even capital market intermediaries for undue personal gain.

Asset misappropriation, fraudulent statements, improper valuation etc. are different kinds of frauds committed in the corporate world. Financial frauds create turmoil in the capital market. In the backdrop of several corporate scams, there were widespread criticisms that the regulatory regime is devoid of adequate mechanisms to prevent corporate fraud. High standards of corporate governance and stringent provisions to tackle corporate fraud have
become the need of the hour.

The Companies Act, 2013 introduced certain novel provisions to address these shortcomings and effectively deal with corporate fraud.

The seminar intends to discuss different kinds of corporate frauds, the challenges faced by the legal system, the importance of anti-fraud mechanisms and the remedies available for redressing the grievances.
