The sexual abuse case in Penn State’s storied football program contains many kinds of stories, mixing human tragedy with sports, scandal, big personalities, and the inner workings of a large-scale institution. But it is also an in-house legal story, with an investigation attempting to unravel federal, state, and institutional laws and rules that are often separate, sometimes contradictory, and frequently overlapping. CorpCounsel has delved into several of the in-house angles of the Penn State story, and below are links to our coverage of the case, along with a roundup of articles by our sibling publication in Pennsylvania, The Legal Intelligencer.
