Brooklyn Law School presents Legal Perspectives on Disaster Preparedness and Pro Bono Assistance after Hurricane Sandy on March 14, 2013.

This forum will address the legal issues associated with disaster preparedness, and best practices for reaching vulnerable communities in the aftermath of a disaster, such as Hurricane Sandy. There will be a discussion on New York City’s particular vulnerability to storm surges as a result of climate change, and how regulatory controls, such as zoning and design guidelines, can make cities like New York more resilient to severe storm events. The forum will also focus on neighborhood-based approaches for reaching populations in need of legal assistance in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy and how litigation can address unmet community needs ranging from housing to public assistance.
