[ Academia ] [ Litigation ] [ Regulatory & Policy ] as a Related Elective for those interested in Corporate Fraud : Employers must consider certain rules in securities law and the corporate governance area when employees are terminated. For example, employment attorneys should be aware of the disclosure obligation that is triggered when certain executives of public companies resign or separate from the company. There are also rules in the corporate law area regarding employer treatment of employees who have made complaints to regulatory authorities (“whistle-blowers”).

This course considers the lawyer’s role as a kind of “gatekeeper,” with a professional responsibility to the public as well as to the client. Students interested in a practice serving business clients should take one or more courses like this that consider corporate governance issues and the professional responsibilities of the business lawyer.
