Continuing Legal Education and Programming

No Cost CLE Programming

As a service to its alumni, Nebraska Law, in partnership with the student organizations, offers multiple continuing legal education opportunities to all alumni. These programs are typically held over the lunch hour. Because programming develops throughout the course of the semester, registration is exclusively online and alumni are encouraged to check this website routinely as programs are added continuously throughout the semester. Non-alumni may also register for these programs at a cost of $20, payable at the door.


Whistleblowing and Ethics

Speaker: Richard Moberly, Interim Dean, Richard and Catherine Schmoker Professor of Law, University of Nebraska College of Law

Tuesday, July 19, 2016 (11:00am – 12:00pm)
Country Kitchen
1250 W. 10th St., Chadron, NE 69337
Approved for 1 Professional Responsibility credit hour
Registration

The “Whistleblowing and Ethics" CLE will examine the legal and ethical implications of whistleblowing. Whistleblowing has become an essential tool for both law enforcement and internal corporate compliance. Dozens of federal and state laws use a variety of methods to encourage insiders, such as employees, to disclose corporate misconduct to someone who can correct it. However, given the wide variety of laws and incentives, the area has become a legal and ethical minefield, with numerous traps for the unwary. Professor Moberly's presentation will focus on whistleblower laws and issues arising when attorneys have to deal with whistleblowers and when attorneys might become whistleblowers themselves.
