A Trusted Source

Kathleen Clark, JD, is professor of law and an expert in legal ethics and national security law. Clark is a 2010–11 Israel Treiman Faculty Fellow, and she teaches and writes about government ethics, national security law, legal ethics and whistleblowing. She co-authored a Washington Post op-ed about the Justice Department torture memo, and she later expanded that analysis into Congressional testimony and a law review article. That article has been featured in two legal ethics casebooks and a public administration anthology, and was cited in a Justice Department Office of Professional Responsibility report about the torture memo.

Clark created and taught for 13 years a course on governmental ethics as part of the law school’s Congressional & Administrative Clinic. She also created a course on comparative whistleblowing, which she taught at Utrecht University. A member of the American Law Institute (ALI), she is an adviser to the ALI’s Project on Principles of Government Ethics, a consultant to the Administrative Conference of the United States and past chair of the National Security Law Section of the Association of American Law Schools. Before joining the law faculty, she clerked for the Hon. Judge Harold H. Greene, U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, and was counsel to the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee, where she worked on issues of white-collar crime.
