Washington Lawyer - April/May 2018 - 41
GLOBAL & DOMESTIC OUTLOOK
Where the law intersects with culture & lifestyle
By Tracy Schorn
FOR TREES, A LIFE
Did you know that some trees warn each other
of danger? Or nurse their sick companions? Or
socialize with each other via a fungal network
(cleverly known as the "Wood Wide Web")?
German forester Peter Wohlleben will make you
reconsider trees in this international bestseller,
The Hidden Life of Trees. (Trees have secret lives?
Who knew?) Wohlleben began his career
working in the lumber industry and converted
to fervent ecologist and preservationist of primordial forests after discovering the fascinating,
true lives of trees. Read Hidden - and you'll
never look at a tree stump the same way again.
AND THE FEDS
Ranked one of the top legal blogs by the
American Bar Association, Sidebars reflects "on
white collar crime and federal criminal law." Which,
given the current news cycle, means a lot of discussion about the Mueller investigation from a trial
lawyer's perspective. The site is the brainchild of
George Washington University law professor
Randall D. Eliason, a former assistant U.S. attorney
for the District of Columbia and who served as
chief of the Public Corruption/Government Fraud
Section. Come for the ongoing smackdown
with Alan Dershowitz, stay for the trenchant
commentary on the rule of law.
CALLING ALL SECURITY LAW WONKS
Based at the New York University School of Law, Just Security analyzes U.S. national security law and policy
in an online forum with government, legal, and academic guest bloggers. Hot topics include surveillance,
laws of war, immigration, and the Russia investigation. (It's a one-stop shop if you're looking for a dozen
articles tearing apart Paul Manafort's lawsuit.) There's even a National Security Law podcast for all your
wonky listening needs.
