Vol. 37 No. 3

In this season of nationwide bad weather, we look forward to spring in Asheville and the SLG/ Public Contract Law Section Joint Spring Meeting on April 24 to 27. This issue of SLLN includes summaries of SLG’s three outstanding CLE programs at the ABA Midyear Meeting in February in Arctic Chicago: “Diversity,” “Digital Privacy,” and “The Big Gulp and the Nanny State.”

Continuing with weather, we consider a law school’s response to Superstorm Sandy. Dean Patricia Salkin describes Touro Law Center’s immediate rallying of all sources of legal assistance for Long Island disaster victims and the inception and growth of the Disaster Clinic at the Law Center, the first in the country. Dennis Abbott and Benjamin Rajotte illustrate pitfalls for property owners and nuances for lawyers in their article on the one-year deadline for flood insurance claims.

On a final note of sunshine, we thank Michael Kamprath, for his article on growing our Section membership, which is excerpted from the January 2014 SOC e-News, published by the ABA Section Officers Conference, and Sorell Negro, for her description of the bimonthly Masters’ Roundtable teleconferences for young lawyers and invitation to Section leaders to serve as Masters.
