Additional information about Superstorm Sandy relief efforts

by Marilyn Cavicchia

The article “Superstorm Sandy pulls bar leaders together, gives disaster planning renewed focus” is only a snapshot and is not intended to cover the full scope of the storm, the communities that have been affected, and the bar associations that have provided assistance, law-related and otherwise. We regret that we could not speak with every bar leader in the storm-affected area, or every bar association that has been involved in the relief efforts.

A number of bar association websites offer additional information; these include:

  • In addition to a number of storm-related resources available on the New Jersey State Bar Association’s home page, elsewhere on the site, there’s a transcript of relevant testimony given in December by NJSBA President Kevin P. McCann  before the state’s Assembly Judiciary Committee.
  • The New York State Bar Association’s Sandy disaster page gives a comprehensive overview of NYSBA’s relief efforts and available resources for the public, for lawyers, and for local bar associations and legal services providers.
  • An ABA resource page pulls together information from around the American Bar Association, including details about the ABA YLD’s hotline coordination efforts, law-related news about the storm, and tools for effective disaster preparedness and response.
