Back to All Events

This Brooklyn Law School event is sponsored by the Center for the Study of Business Law and Regulation. Moderated by Miriam Baer, Brooklyn Law School Professor of Law, this wide-ranging discussion will address contemporary challenges and future predictions for a practice that has become a strong component of corporate enforcement.

The panel of practitioners and scholars will share their expertise on corporate whistleblowing in the United States and in the European Union. They will discuss the laws and government institutions that manage corporate whistleblowing and the behavioral incentives to suppress or come forward with pertinent information. Practitioners who represent whistleblowers and corporate defendants, and who have practiced as federal prosecutors will offer their views and expertise regarding whistleblowing and whistleblowing policy. The panel’s scholars will explore several of whistleblowing’s structural and doctrinal challenges.

The panelists will include:

  • Mary Inman, Head of International Whistleblower practice, Constantine Cannon LLP, San Francisco and London offices
  • Prof. Dr. Katja Langenbucher, Goethe University, Frankfurt, affiliated at SciencesPo, Paris; Fordham University School of Law, NYC
  • Jennifer M. Pacella, Assistant Professor in the Business Law and Ethics Department, Indiana University Kelley School of Business, and scholar in domestic whistleblowing
  • Winston M. Paes '03, Debevoise & Plimpton; Former Chief, Business and Securities Fraud Section, United States Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of New York

The panel will take place on Wednesday 14 October 2020 at 12:45pm EDT. For more information and to register, visit here
