Katrina Teaching/Scholarship

A PowerPoint of Katrina 18 months later with very good photos and overview according to education, health, etc. is available online thanks to Bill Quigley at Loyola University New Orleans School of Law. 

Note, I was a Loyno LR&W fellow prior to getting my current job and in fact was working there before and after Katrina, but it is worth noting, despite this possible bias, that a number of Loyno profs have directed their scholarship to the challenges and issues involved in and revealed by Katrina and Katrina's aftermath (only a sampling):
Maria Isabel Medina, Confronting the Rights Deficit at Home: Is the Nation Prepared in the Aftermath of Katrina?  Confronting the Myth of Efficiency, 43 Cal. W. L. Rev. 9 (2006). 
Mitchell F. Custo, The Katrina Fund: Repairing Breaches in Gulf Coast Insurance Levees, 43 Harv. J. on Legis. 329 (2006).
Robert R.M. Verchick, Risk, Fairness, and the Geography of DisasterDraftSSRN. 

Additional material: Thurgood Marshall Law Review Symposium on Katrina (2006), Douglas A. Kysar, Did NEPA Drown New Orleans? The Levees, The Blame Game, and the Hazards of Hindsight, 56 Duke L.J. 179 (2006).
