Professor Roman Tomasic delivered a distinguished guest lecture on Friday 8th December to mark the launch of the UCD School of Law's new LLM in International Financial Services Law which is being delivered in association with the Law Society Finuas Network. In his lecture, Prof Tomasic considered whether concepts of corporate culture have a role to play in the corporate governance of financial institutions. He suggested that the fuzziness of the culture concept is such as to limit its usefulness in criminal prosecutions and argued that corporate culture is unlikely to present a quick fix for reestablishing public trust and confidence in the financial sector. 

Professor Tomasic holds appointments at the University of South Australia and Durham University School of Law. A graduate of the University of Wisconsin-Madison (SJD) and the University of New South Wales (PhD), A specialist in financial regualtion, he has acted a law reform consultant to the OECD, the German government and the Finance and Economic Committee of the National People's Congress in China. Professor Tomasic has published widely in the fields of corporate governance, financial regulation and insolvency law. In this lecture Prof Tomasic will consider the role of corporate culture in financial regulation.
