BIG NAME - Lisa Monaco, whose career has spanned the DOJ, the FBI and the Obama White House, is joining O’Melveny & Myers as partner and co-chair of its data security and privacy group, Ryan Lovelace reports. Monaco, who served as Obama’s Homeland Security Advisor, has been a senior national security analyst for CNN.

CLINGING TO LIFE - Another law school is teetering on the edge of failure. Karen Sloan reports that ABA-accredited Western State College of Law in Orange County, California, was poised to shut down mid-semester, in what would’ve been the first such closure in history, but a federal judge has ordered enough funding to allow it to remain open until the end of the term. The school, which has about 300 students, entered into a court-appointed receivership in January. Its demise would become the sixth ABA-accredited law school to shutter or announce plans to close since 2016.
