ABA's CLE Program on Ethics Issues in Representing a Client After a Disaster (Mainly the Client's Disaster)

Here is a link to an ABA-sponsored ethics webcast, scheduled for Tuesday, Nov. 28, on issues in representing clients after a disaster (including pre-planning to make sure the clients are cared for in spite of the lawyer's and client's troubles).  Such disasters include extreme ones like hurricane and office fire and also more personal ones like family illness and call-up to military service–-basically life-changing events that make clients vulnerable and raise unique issues of ethics and professionalism (such as practice across state lines and rules about active-duty military clients).  Its format is a 90-minute live audio webcast or teleconference.  I don't know anything about four of the five listed speakers (from all over), but I can tell you that the fifth--New Orleans attorney Malcolm Meyer--is an experienced adjunct ethics teacher who cares about these issues and recently lived them through Katrina.  [Alan Childress]
