Disaster Preparedness and Response Podcasts
This post was created by Jill Mariani. ABA Tort Trial and Insurance Practice Section, through its Government Law Committee chaired by Jill Mariani, and in partnership with Thomson Reuters, is presenting a 10 part podcast series on Disaster Preparedness and Response that will air throughout the year. Two podcasts will be general themed podcasts; 2 podcasts will air before each of the four upcoming TIPS live CLE programs that will discuss specific topics either featured in or related to programs presented at the Fall, Mid-Year, Spring and Annual Meetings of the Tort Trial and Insurance Practice Section.
In the first podcast, entitled Disaster Awareness: What the ABA Is Doing About It, ABA President Steve Zack details the myriad of ways the ABA is providing assistance to the legal community in the wake of mass disasters whether caused by acts of domestic or international terrorism, acts of nature or negligent acts. In addition, TIPS Chair-elect Randy Aliment outlines the components of his year-long initiative designed to bring disaster awareness to a heightened level. Click here to listen.
