- On April 21, two whistleblowers, along with a leading author on whistleblowing, discuss what motivates individual whistleblowers to speak up and the risks they face when they do.
- On April 22, three experts in whistleblower laws will discuss the history and structure of the federal False Claims Act’s unique whistleblower provisions, and how they became the US’s chief fraud enforcement tool.
- Finally, on April 26, officials from the Department of Justice, the Securities & Exchange Commission and the Commodity Futures Trading Commission will join us to discuss the successes and impacts of their agencies’ whistleblower programs, and what’s ahead for whistleblower enforcement in the near and longer terms.
