Greens List Barrister, Philippa Kelly, recently co-presented a CPD for Bench TV on Civil Penalties imposed by the Federal Court.
Civil penalty has a different purpose to criminal sanction. Criminal sentencing has three main goals; retribution for the criminal conduct, rehabilitation for the offender and deterrence. A civil penalty has only one object; that is promoting the public interest in compliance. Find out how civil penalties achieve this by joining Leigh Howard and Philippa Kelly in this episode of BenchTV.
