Loyola College of Law students respond to Gustav and Ike victims

September 26, 2008

The Student Bar Association at Loyola University New Orleans College of Law will be assisting residents of Terrebonne and Lafourche parishes this weekend with FEMA claims related to Hurricanes Gustav and Ike.

On Sunday, Sept. 30, students from the SBA, with the assistance of the Katrina Clinic in the Stuart H. Smith Law Clinic and Center for Social Justice, will volunteer their services to hurricane victims. Attorney supervision will be provided for volunteering law students.

There will also be opportunities to participate in “hands-on” clean-up efforts, depending on the number of volunteers and weather conditions.

“This represents a combined response by our students, faculty and staff to offer our time, resources and talent to those affected by Hurricanes Gustav and Ike. We saw a need to help and the response has been overwhelming,” said Carl D. Michel, president of Loyola’s Student Bar Association.

Transportation and lunch will be provided for volunteers. Volunteers should meet in the Broadway Activities Center at 9 a.m. Sunday and plan to be back on campus by 4 p.m.
