This Blog covers the ABA Tort Trial & Insurance Practice Section's series of podcasts, teleconferences, and live programs dedicated to Disaster Preparedness and Response. It addresses issues arising out of disasters caused by foreign and domestic acts of terrorism, by negligent acts, by natural events and by threats to our cyber-security and will confront the issues of preparedness, risk management, recovery and response, liability, insurance, claims and litigation.
TIPS Chair Randy Aliment prepared this post. The ABA's Special Committee on Disaster Response and Preparedness developed this short video to educate lawyers on the importance of preparing their legal practice to withstand disasters. The video was presented at the 2011 ABA Annual Meeting in Toronto and will be available on the ABA Special Committee on Disaster Response and Preparedness' website as well as the TIPS Disaster Initiative page, but can be seen by clicking on video. Please watch the video and share your comments on this blog.
The TIPS Disaster Preparedness and Response Initiative addresses these and other issues concerning disasters caused by nature, negligence, and terrorism in its podcasts, teleconferences, and live meeting programming throughout 2011-12. Please join us at one or more of these DPRI events. Program and registration information can be found here.
