Benefits:

Fluency in Qui Tam, Whistleblower, & the False Claims Act law has become increasingly important in recent years due to a significant expansion of whistleblower reward and protection laws. Over the past two decades, nearly $30 billion has been recovered through Qui Tam cases under the False Claims Act, and recently the SEC’s whistleblower program has issued large awards. At the same time, recent amendments to whistleblower laws and significant decisions construing whistleblower protection laws have resulted in an increase in whistleblower litigation. The Rossdale faculty for this seminar features two national authorities in these evolving practices, who will describe the latest developments and cutting edge issues in whistleblower protection, litigating & handing Qui Tam and False Claim Acts. Registration includes online access to course and reference materials that serve as a helpful guide to the numerous topics and techniques discussed in the program.
