Implementation of the Sessions, Brand, and Granston Memos - Listen With a Colleague

The “Listen with a Colleague" option allows multiple registrants from the same organization and location to participate in the webinar at a discounted rate. It may ONLY be used if at least one person from your organization and location has registered at the regular/full webinar registration rate. Please note that those who register under the reduced “Listen with a Colleague" rate must access the webinar from the same location and computer as the full-priced registrant they are registered under.

The “Listen with a Colleague" option is continuing legal education (CLE) credit-eligible. In order to obtain a certificate of completion for submission to a state CLE accrediting body, those registered under this option must obtain the attendance verification code—which will be displayed at a random time during the webinar—and enter that code under “Verification Code for Live Webinar" section of the webinar description webpage. Please note that each registrant must submit a complete evaluation from their individual accounts to obtain a certificate of completion.

If you have any questions about this registration option, please contact customer support.

Time: 2:00-3:30 PM Eastern (90 minutes)
Session Format: Listen With a Colleague

Please join our distinguished panel of thought leaders at the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ), the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, and the U.S. Department of Labor for an in-depth discussion of the Sessions, Brand and Granston Memos.  On November 16, 2017, the Sessions Memo set forth the DOJ’s new policy that it would no longer issue any kind of binding sub-regulatory guidance without undergoing the notice and comment rulemaking process.  The Brand Memo, issued on January 24, 2018, then instructed DOJ attorneys not to use their affirmative civil enforcement authority to convert other agencies’ subregulatory guidance into rules that could be used to establish a violation of law.  These two memos, along with the January 10, 2018 Granston Memo, which set forth the factors to be used by federal prosecutors to dismiss qui tam FCA cases, together represent an important shift in how the False Claims Act will be enforced.
