Course Offerings

You will find a broad and challenging curriculum at Georgia Law - nearly 170 courses are offered, although not all of the listed courses are taught each year. First-year students are just as likely to encounter a tenured or chaired faculty member in the classroom as they are a junior professor.  Distinguished visitors and adjuncts supplement the faculty and diversify the upper-level curriculum. Not all listed courses are offered each semester. Periodically, other courses are offered.  Unless otherwise noted, all law courses carry the prefix "JURI." 

CURRENT STUDENTS: For the upcoming academic year, awlays visit the Class Schedules & Registration webpage for requirement lists and guidelines including 2L Writing, Advanced Writing, Capstone, and Practical Skills requirements.

  • Whistleblower Litigation Seminar , JURI 5644 , Credit Hours: 2
    This seminar focuses on the major Federal whistleblower statute -- the civil False Claims Act (FCA) -- which in recent years has resulted in billions of dollars of recoveries for the U.S. Government and various states, and huge rewards for the private whistleblowers instigating these cases. The FCA creates a unique partnership among private plaintiffs, their counsel, and Government lawyers, and is spawning an ever expanding number of Federal and state investigations. We will examine the evolution of the FCA from the Civil War era through its modern amendments, and the key substantive and strategic issues in pursuing and defending FCA cases today. The course will also briefly review the new whistleblower reward program at the Securities and Exchange Commission and the recently enhanced program at the Internal Revenue Service. This class is limited to 20 students.
