About the Event

Representing Intelligence Community whistleblowers is even more arcane and convoluted than usual, with unique challenges, unclear and/or inconsistent rules, and more executive discretion than you can shake a stick at. Join national security whistleblower lawyers Steven Cash, Kel McClanahan, and Charles McCullough as they take you through a crash course on the pitfalls and opportunities unique to representing Intelligence Community whistleblowers, including: (1) how to get access to people and information the agency claims are classified; (2) the approved mechanisms for making disclosures, and the strengths and weaknesses of each; and (3) the most common mistakes Intelligence Community whistleblowers (and their lawyers) make, and how to avoid them.
