Abstract

In the UK, plea bargaining does not formally exist, although its informal use is widespread. Recent pressures on legal aid and the court system to become more 'efficient' are increasing its prevalence still further, yet it remains unregulated and under-researched. There is one exception to this state of affairs: since 2009, the Serious Fraud Office has had the power to enter into plea bargains in cases of serious and complex fraud. This paper compares that model of plea bargaining with models adopted in the USA, with the aim of exploring common ground, perceptions of difference, and lessons to be learnt.
