BJIL Lunch Talk: New Frontiers in Accountability – How the FCA and FCPA Can Be Used as Human Rights Tools

Wednesday, February 12, 2020 @ 12:45 pm

As U.S. courts have begun to turn away from human rights law as a tool for justice, attorneys across the nation have been instrumental in utilizing creative legal strategies to hold human rights abusers accountable. Join in a lunch talk with Sarah “Poppy” Alexander as she speaks on the possibility of FCA, FCPA, and whistle-blower law as means of upholding human rights law in the United States.

Poppy Alexander is an associate in Constantine Cannon’s San Francisco office. She represents whistleblowers and government entities in qui tam lawsuits in both federal and state court, as well as under the Internal Revenue Service and Securities and Exchange Commission’s whistleblower programs. Poppy was selected to the Northern California Super Lawyers Rising Stars list in 2016, 2017, and 2018.
