Posted by Peel Law Association on 9 April 2021

Continue to watch this space for promotions highlighting one of the books recently added to the PLA Library collection, as well as old favourites we think may be of interest to our PLA Library users.

Published: October 2020 by Emond.

The reality is that crime, specifically fraud, is becoming more common, organized, and complex. The increase in white-collar offences has changed the way society is tackling fraud, from police services across Canada developing specialized units for fraud investigation to regulatory bodies pursuing severe disciplinary measures. Read more.
