Recovering And Rebuilding After Sandy

Friday, Apr 5, 2013

Recovering and Rebuilding After Superstorm Sandy - Legal Perspectives: What We Know and Where We Go
This conference will examine the significant flaws that Superstorm Sandy revealed in our housing, transit and electric power systems and infrastructure, and the legal implications of addressing those vulnerabilities and climate-change-related impacts. The panelists will discuss how making our communities more resilient will require a rethinking of physical changes to our environment and also a reconsideration of local, federal and state land use and environmental laws and regulations. Insurance and risk management have played and will continue to play a central role in response and recovery; those topics and sources of funding for rebuilding and mitigation will also be addressed.

7.5 CLE Credits available
