A City Below Sea Level Rises Above: Exploring the Legal Impact of Hurricane Katrina
This year the Loyola Law Review Symposium will commemorate the ten year anniversary
of Hurricane Katrina in Louisiana by exploring the disaster’s effects on legal doctrine and
theory in Louisiana. Three panels of practitioners, judges, and scholars will discuss major
cases arising from the storm and its aftermath, as well as the current state and future
trajectories of civil liberties, property rights, housing and development practices, legal
ethics, and adjudication. The Loyola Law Review is honored to feature James Carville
as the keynote speaker for this event. Mr. Carville will discuss the storm’s impact on
Louisiana law, politics, and economics and the state’s future based on the lessons learned after the storm.
This course has been approved by the Mandatory Continuing Legal Education Committee of the Louisiana Supreme Court for a maximum of 6.0 hours of credit, including 0.5 hours of ethics. CLE credit is free. Please register by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org
