ABSTRACT
The article reports on the review of a study concerning the rise of jail terms for fraud in Great Britain. The study proposes one-stop courts that bring together civil, criminal and regulatory proceedings to cut the number of costly, lengthy and abortive trials. It recommends longer prison terms for the most serious fraud offences, alongside measures to allow plea bargaining.
