Benefits:

Whistleblower & False Claims have become increasingly important in recent years due to a significant expansion of whistleblower reward and protection statutes. Over the past two decades, nearly $30 billion has been recovered through Qui Tam cases under the False Claims Act, and recently the federal government'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 seminar features three national authorities in this evolving practice, who will describe the latest court decisions, 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.
