ABA Webmaster Fred Faulkner sends word that the ABA has created a Web site devoted to Hurricane Katrina Disaster Recovery Resources. The site provides information on relief efforts and allows lawyers to volunteer legal assistance and office space. The site has sections for lawyers needing disaster help, for victims and their families, for lawyers wanting to volunteer, and for military personnel needing legal help. Fred says the site will continue to be updated on a regular basis as more resources become available. “I expect this site to exist for the next year as the issues at hand will not be short-term,” he says.
