Crusto to collaborate on Katrina case study

February 26, 2010

Loyola University New Orleans College of Law professor Mitch Crusto has been selected to collaborate on a Katrina case study by The Academy for Critical Incident Analysis at John Jay College of Criminal Justice at the City University of New York.

In early February, Crusto met with the academy in New York to plan a conference in New Orleans this summer to address the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina and its effects on the city’s residents.

Crusto has published Katrina-related scholarly articles in the Harvard Journal on Legislation, “The Katrina Fund,” the University of Pittsburgh Law Review, “Enslaved Constitution,” and in the Louisiana Bar Journal, “Louisiana’s Valued Policy Law.” He also published a chapter, “Letter from a Native Son,” in “Hurricane Katrina: America's Unnatural Disaster.”

In addition, Crusto has taught the course, “Katrina and the Law: the Ethics of Disasters,” at the University of Miami School of Law. He has presented scholarly Katrina-related papers to judges and other attorneys at several Continuing Legal Education programs at the Southeastern Association of Law Schools, and at Florida A&M University College of Law.

This semester, Crusto is teaching The Legal Profession and Common Law Property II.
