Stephen M. Kohn, whistleblower attorney at the qui tam law firm Kohn, Kohn & Colapinto (KKC), will be the featured speaker at The Bier Baron Tavern on Monday, December 2nd. Kohn’s presentation is part of a guest lecture series called “Profs and Pints,” where college professors deliver “lessons” in a bar.
Kohn’s lecture, “Understanding Whistleblower Law,” will touch on the evolution of whistleblower laws and the importance of advanced protection laws for whistleblowers.
In his “Profs and Pints” talk, Kohn will address recent whistleblower news as well as the origins of whistleblower laws, which date back to the late 1700s. In his original historical research for his most recent book on whistleblower law, The New Whistleblowers Handbook, Kohn rediscovered the stories of the first whistleblowers and the Continental Congress’s passage of the nation’s first whistleblower protection law.
Kohn is a founding partner at KKC and has represented whistleblowers for over 35 years, including UBS whistleblower Bradley Birkenfeld, the recipient of the largest individual whistleblower award in history ($104 million). Kohn is also an adjunct professor at the Northeastern University School of Law and co-founder of the National Whistleblower Center.
