Religious Liberties Practice Group Podcast
Mr. Gregory S. Baylor of Alliance Defending Freedom discussed current and future challenges to the religious freedom of faith-based institutions of higher education, with a special focus on the ongoing debate over California Senate Bill 1146. Earlier versions of SB1146 would have significantly curtailed longstanding religious freedom protections in state anti-discrimination law, thereby exposing faith-based schools to liability for discrimination on the basis of religion, sexual orientation, and gender identity in student and employee relations. The bill's prime sponsor recently removed its most controversial provisions, but he indicated that a similar bill may be proposed in the next legislative session.

International & National Security Law Practice Group Podcast
General Michael V. Hayden, former Director of the National Security Agency and the Central Intelligence Agency, and retired United States Air Force four-star general, joined us to discuss his new book, Playing to the Edge: American Intelligence in the Age of Terror, his memoir as a career intelligence officer and leader. Though the book covers the arc of his entire professional life, our Teleforum focuses primarily on the cyber world, which General Hayden describes as “a domain of conflict and cooperation whose importance seems to grow by the hour” couched “in an era of shrinking trust in government and expanding global threats."
