National Security - Hand-in-hand with United Way - Advice for Young Lawyers - Radio Higher Ed
December 8, 2011
Hosted by Squire Patton Boggs
Join us on this week's Capital Thinking with guest host, Scott Weber as he will be first visited by Major General Mike Nardotti (U.S. Army, Retired) to discuss the latest controversy arising from the Senate's passage of a law which allows the military to handle terror suspect investigations and interrogations, thus opening the door for indefinite and trial-free detention of anyone, including American citizens. The law was passed as part of the National Defense Authorization Act and is up for review by the President. Next, switching gears from the national level to local, Brian Lopina and Bob Horn will share with us their recent success story with regards to assisting United Way in securing a multi-million Dollar, multi-year, grant for Pre-K early learning in Southeastern Michigan, and why the success of this project is crucial for the development of local non-profits in low income communities throughout the Detroit metropolitan area. Then, Betsy Munnell will be back to provide additional guidance to junior associates on how to work smart and effectively during their first couple of years in the practice. Finally, Alison Griffin, who is a partner in the development of a new podcast called Radio Higher Ed will join Scott to discuss some of the most critical postsecondary education issues facing the nation today, and what the policy makers should do to improve on the current conditions.
