Free CLE Program on Katrina
The American Bar Association Tort Trial and Insurance Practice Section, in partnership with West LegalEdcenter, is offering ABA members a complimentary program, “When the Levees Broke: Lessons Learned From Judicial and Governmental Response to Hurricane Katrina,” available April 5 – May 5. The program was presented during the 2012 ABA Midyear Meeting and was produced by the TIPS Task Force on Disaster Preparedness and Response. The program focuses on the challenges that the judiciary as well as federal, state and local governments faced in the Katrina disaster, and the response to those challenges. Those affected by the disaster relay their experiences and offer lessons learned. Speakers include Kathleen Strickland of Ropers, Majeski, Kohn & Bentley; Jennifer Kilpatrick of Degal, Blanchard & Nash; Judge Madeleine Landrieu of the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeal, Orleans Parish, La.; and Judge Karen Wells Roby of the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Louisiana. While this is a free program, CLE credit can be obtained for $50. For more information, including how to register and view the program, click here.
