Friends of Henry Hubschman, HLS 1972 M.P.P. 1973, have set up a fellowship in his memory at Harvard Kennedy School (HKS) and Harvard Law School (HLS). Established shortly after Hubschman’s death in February 2011, the fellowship has received more than $550,000 in contributions and is now permanently endowed. It will provide financial assistance to students beginning in the academic year 2012–13.HKS and HLS created the Joint Degree Program in Law and Government because many public problems have a legal component and many legal issues affect the policy arena. The program permits students to pursue a J.D. at HLS and either a master in public policy (MPP) or in public administration in international development (M.P.A./I.D.) at the Kennedy School in an integrated way in a reduced time period. The program has been a formal joint degree program since 2006.“Educating students about the issues at the intersection of law and public policy is key to the Kennedy School’s mission of training exceptional public leaders,” said David Ellwood, dean of HKS and Scott M. Black Professor of Political Economy. “This gift will help us attract and engage the very best students to Harvard.”“The solutions to critical problems increasingly demand knowledge of institutions, law, policy, and politics, so it is terrific to see this wonderful gift offer talented students the chance to pursue learning across all these fields,” said Martha Minow, dean and Jeremiah Smith Jr. Professor at Harvard Law School. “We are enormously grateful that this fellowship honors an individual whose own studies and career so effectively united law and policy.” Read Full Story
A Florida Bar commission studying multijurisdictional practices is leaning toward recommending a “safe harbor” approach to guide lawyers who cross state boundaries in the course of representing their clients.Commission Chair Richard Gilbert reported to the Board of Governors on February 1 that the panel plans to have its report to the board for its March 15 meeting in Tallahassee. The board wants to forward their comments to a special ABA MJP commission that meets six days later.Gilbert noted the Bar commission had a public hearing at the January Midyear Meeting and received comments. Some speakers, he noted, said they needed more time, but he said the commission and the board need to finish their work before the ABA panel meets again.MJP involves things such as a lawyer traveling to another state, where he or she is not licensed, to take a deposition. Or a lawyer responding to a client who has a question about another state’s laws, who has a business that crosses state borders, or needs mediation and arbitration help in another state.Proposals, Gilbert said, have included:• Creating a national licensing agency for lawyers, superceding the current state controls.• Treating a lawyer’s license like a driver’s license, where a license from one state would be recognized and honored in all other states.• Creating a “green card” system where a visiting lawyer would register in another state, pay a fee, and be regulated accordingly.• Creating “safe harbors” where certain conduct would be presumed okay if conducted in a state where the lawyer is not licensed.Both the ABA and the Bar commissions are leaning toward the safe harbor approach, Gilbert said, although what conduct should be included is still up in the air.The ABA panel’s preliminary recommendations include that protected conduct should be reasonable and not create an unnecessary risk, allowing lawyers to be admitted by motion to handle a matter as long as they have graduated from an accredited school and meet other standards, creating a uniform pro hac vice rule, and having reciprocal recognition of disciplinary sanctions, he said.Gilbert said the Bar commission does not like the motion practice admission proposal, modified the reciprocal discipline ideas, and thought the no harm standards for practicing in a foreign jurisdiction were too vague.“We followed the concept of having certain safe harbors that would provide shelter for performing temporary legal services outside your home state where you are licensed,” Gilbert said.He said the commission’s written report would be ready by the March 15 meeting, and said he hopes to hear from more sections and committees before then.

The visit was a follow up to the Australia-Indonesia Economic Partnership Agreement (IA-CEPA), which is expected to push the two countries to become the “economic powerhouse” of Asia-Pacific.Indonesia also hopes to be a hub for Australia and other countries — in the sense of making products from raw goods coming from Australia and exporting them to, particularly, the Middle East market.In response, Birmingham said that he was interested in developing supporting infrastructure in the said areas.The Indonesian government is aimed at achieving Rp 446 trillion (US$32.58 billion) worth of investment, with construction work targeted to start this year.“We have the omnibus bill that can push forward the investment process. This is what we’ve offered to them. The law allows the BKPM to issue all permits on investment and fiscal incentives,” Bahlil said.Bahlil accompanied President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo for a bilateral visit to Canberra on Sunday and Monday. The President was on a state visit and attended an Annual Leaders Meeting in Australia.Between 2015 and 2019, Australia only invested $1.8 billion making it the 12th-largest investor in Indonesia. (gis)Topics : “There are so many Australian tourists coming to Bali. We expect Australian businesspeople to develop the two areas so that the tourists are not only coming to Bali but also to Mandalika and Labuan Bajo,” Bahlil said during the visit, according to a BKPM statement made available to The Jakarta Post on Tuesday.Besides tourism, Bahlil is also offering potential investment opportunities in education, mainly in tourism and medical education, to the Australians.Bahlil said he envisioned Australia cooperating with Indonesia to build high-quality educational institutions and/or vocational schools in the 10 New Bali areas.Read also: Diaspora promises to promote ’10 New Balis’ Investment Coordinating Board (BKPM) head Bahlil Lahadalia has offered potential investment opportunities in Indonesia’s 10 new tourist destinations, dubbed the “10 New Balis”, to the Australian government.In a visit to Canberra on Sunday, Bahlil had the opportunity to meet with Australia’s Trade, Tourism and Investment Minister Simon Birmingham, among other officials.Bahlil revealed that Australia was interested in Labuan Bajo in East Nusa Tenggara and Mandalika in West Nusa Tenggara, where Indonesia’s 2021 MotoGP motorcycle race is set to take place.
The Badgers asserted their dominance over Ohio State University and the University of Maryland in the comforts of the University of Wisconsin Field House last weekend, but defeating Big Ten talent on the road is an entirely different challenge.Volleyball: No. 3 Badgers kick off conference play against Ohio Sate, MarylandThe University of Wisconsin volleyball team opens up Big Ten play this weekend with a two-game stint against No. 19 Read…PurdueThe Badgers open this weekend’s Indiana road trip in West Lafayette against No. 14 Purdue University Friday night, where they take on a Boilermakers team that has won nine of its last 10 games.Purdue University and Indiana University combine for a staggering 23-5 a record overall, but a much less-daunting 2-2 in conference play after both teams split their first two Big Ten matchups to start the season.With key wins over teams such as No.8 Stanford University and No. 9 Kansas University, the No. 14 Boilermakers (11-2, 1-1 Big Ten) might be even better than their rank suggests. In Purdue’s win over the Cardinal earlier this year, the Boilermakers went on the road to Palo Alto as part of the Stanford Invitational and sent the host team packing in the first round.Coincidentally, Purdue’s most recent victory came against Indiana last weekend, meaning that Friday’s night battle should be a good measuring stick for how the Badgers should look against Indiana the following day.IndianaIf facing a team as talented as Indiana in front of its home crowd wasn’t a tall enough order to begin with for UW, the Badgers’ scheduling for this weekend should certainly do the trick.Even excluding the time it will take to cover more than 100 miles of ground, Wisconsin will have to rally this weekend to overcome a less-than-24-hour turnaround time between Friday night’s battle with Purdue and Saturday’s matchup against Indiana.The Hoosiers (12-3, 1-1 Big Ten) kicked off the season with a hot start, rushing ahead to a 9-0 start, but have since fell into somewhat of a rough patch after losing three of their last six games.Look for Wisconsin veteran players such as senior setter Lauren Carlini and junior outside hitter Kelli Bates to be more aggressive out of the gate and take an early command to crush the will of a Indiana team looking for its first marquee win of the season. With the No. 3 Badgers rolling into town on such short rest, Saturday could be a golden opportunity for the Hoosiers to do so.
On Saturday, beautiful Tuscaloosa, Ala., was host to the best game of this college football season. The No. 3 Alabama Crimson Tide hosted the No. 2 LSU Tigers in what many believed to be a mock playoff game between two of the SEC’s best. The Tigers jumped out to an early lead and quieted the usually rowdy Crimson Tide home crowd, going into halftime with a dominant 33-13 advantage. Tagovailoa and the Tide fought back in the second half, making it a one-score game late in the fourth quarter. Still, it was the Tigers who held on for victory, and the college football world was set ablaze accordingly. While Orgeron has maintained a player-friendly reputation since his career began, it’s become a trademark of sorts for the deep-voiced, barrel-chested Cajun who began his college football career as a reserve for LSU before transferring to Louisiana’s Northwestern State University. Since then, he’s brought his blue-collar, family and football first philosophy to an impressive line of stops that includes the University of Miami, the University of Mississippi and — yup, you guessed it — USC. “I’m so happy for the state of Louisiana,” Orgeron said following Saturday’s win over the Tide. “We’re bringing a national championship back to the state of Louisiana.” You’d think a rare home loss would put the spotlight squarely on Alabama head coach Nick Saban, but it was LSU head coach Ed Orgeron who stole the show and the hearts of viewers around the country with the career-defining victory. Matthew Philips is a senior writing about football. He is also a former lifestyle editor of the Daily Trojan. His column, “Catch or No Catch,” runs every other Tuesday. Everything was on the line this game and, boy, did it deliver. In this emotional postgame interview, Orgeron doesn’t take credit or mention himself even once. He gives all the praise to his players and all the spoils to his home state. If that isn’t pure class, then I don’t know what is. He and his college football-loving heart are right where they belong, right in the bayous of Southern Louisiana. The Crimson Tide had been riding a 31-game winning streak at Bryant-Denny Stadium before the Tigers came to town, adding to the tension of a potential loser-goes-home scenario for the elusive College Football Playoff. A head-to-head matchup of Heisman frontrunners in LSU senior quarterback Joe Burrow and Alabama junior quarterback Tua Tagovailoa also set the stage for a potential Trophy-winning game between the two. Sadly, Orgeron didn’t last long as USC’s interim coach following the firing of *gasp* the infamous Lane Kiffin in 2013. He went 6-2 to finish out the season as head coach of the Trojans and resigned from the program after the hiring of *gasp again* former Washington head coach Steve Sarkisian. Orgeron, or “Coach O” as he’s affectionately known throughout college football, might be the most likeable figure at the head coaching position. His gruff Southern Louisiana accent has quickly made him a beloved icon among fans and analysts alike, but it’s his warm, egoless coaching philosophy that sets Orgeron apart from the rest of college football’s elite. Since then, it’s been a slow ascent up the coaching hierarchy at LSU for Orgeron, who accepted the position of defensive line coach in 2015 under head coach Les Miles. When Miles was fired in 2016 following a loss to Auburn, Orgeron was announced interim coach for his home state’s flagship football program. And, after LSU closed the season with an impressive 6-2 stretch under Orgeron (sound familiar?), the administration dropped the “interim” tag and promoted Orgeron to full-time head coach. As a young man, Orgeron served as the defensive line coach for several impressive University of Miami teams that produced players such as Cortez Kennedy, Russell Maryland and Warren Sapp. There, Orgeron became well-known as a coach unafraid to take his shirt off and wrestle any players who challenged him as the strongest guy in the locker room. (Rumor has it he hasn’t engaged in this behavior in several years, but I’ll bet you can find answers in the USC athletics department if you look hard enough.) Also, I’m sorry to say this to USC fans but, after sobbing (correction: I was sobbing; he was fighting back tears) along with Coach O following his Tigers’ victory over the Crimson Tide, it’s safe to say he’s at the right place. We had our shot, and we decided he wasn’t the right fit. We weren’t wrong. Now, looking back, it’s not hard to see that the school made the right decision. Orgeron has built a program on tough love and hard work down in Baton Rouge, and it will likely result in a playoff berth and Heisman candidate for the hungry Tigers’ team.
