ABA Tips

Lawyers at the Ready in Disasters


Attorneys can be more than lawyers, when the next disaster strikes. In part two of this emergency management series on Legal TIPS, host Barbara J. Gislason interviews two visionary lawyers, with unique perspectives.  First, lawyer Richard Friedman, President of the National Strategy Forum, discusses the dangers he sees on the horizon, and how lawyers can prepare. And Melissa Rubin, Vice President of Field and Emergency Services of the Humane Society of the United States shares a compelling story about pets in a disaster, and offers legal and practical advice.
