    Latham & Watkins Forum – National Security: The Role of Senior Advisers in the White House

    "To formulate national security policy—or respond to a crisis—presidents can turn to White House-based intelligence officers, military leaders, and foreign policy specialists. They also look to lawyers, both from the Office of White House Counsel and others serving as special advisers. For this Forum, Professor Ryan Goodman will moderate a discussion among three such lawyers with experience in the administrations of Presidents Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, and Barack Obama. Among the questions to be explored: What sort of role do lawyers play in this setting? What do the panelists think White House lawyers and senior advisers are and should be wrestling with currently in areas such as counter-terrorism, North Korea, and the Russia investigation? How does a White House think about the legal and policy constraints it leaves for future administrations? Come hear the discussion, and bring questions of your own." Read more >

    France Has ‘Champagne,’ Portugal Has ‘Port.’ Should Australia Have ‘Uggs?’

    "LIDCOMBE, Australia — Three decades before Oprah Winfrey ignited a fashion firestorm by promoting the fleecy footwear known as Uggs, a surfer named Corky Carroll packed a pair of something very similar for what would turn out to be a fateful journey.

    Mr. Carroll, a famous surfer in the 1960s and ’70s, discovered the boots while hitting the waves in Australia, where locals used them to keep their feet warm on cold days at the beach. Mr. Carroll brought a pair back with him to California, he said, then asked a friend to send him a hundred to sell on consignment after other surfers began admiring them."
