The Law of Whistleblowing

Whistleblowing is the deliberate revelation of information regarding alleged wrongdoing within an organization, a government agency, or even a law firm. The perceived wrongdoing includes violations of company or government policy, fraud, corruption and threats to public safety. While this course will provide a broad overview of the state and federal laws addressing whistleblowing as it applies to lawyers and to constituents of organizations or government entities, we will primarily delve into the ethics and morality surrounding whistleblowing. This is a highly interactive course and we will use recent whistleblowing cases as a basis for discussion and further study.
