Group Meeting- Disaster Legal Aid & Insurance

Topics:
  • Disaster Relief

With all the disasters that have happened the last year, there has appeared to be a recognized need for legal aid providers to assist in insurance cases where they have not before.  However, this also means reconciling this assistance with LSC provisions. 

Instead of reinventing the wheel, we would like you to participate in a colloquy to discuss what insurance issues you see in your program, how you assist your clients, and how we can learn from each other how to make services beneficial to clients -- including education, pro bono and expert involvement, co-counseling or litigation if necessary.

Open to all legal aid staff, pro bono attorneys, and public interest advocates engaged in disaster relief efforts.
