Touro Law Center will be hosting a Day of Service for SuperStorm Sandy victims in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and the law school’s public service mission, on Monday, January 20 from 11:00 am to 2:00 pm at Touro Law Center in Central Islip, NY. The program is designed to help members of the public and disaster relief nonprofits who have clients with outstanding legal needs in the wake of SuperStorm Sandy.
There will be an opening presentation at 11:00 am by Touro Law administration and faculty introducing the Day of Service, and then providing valuable information about disaster resources to help promote recovery, including ways to pursue ongoing flood insurance claims. This forum will include a community question and answer period. At Noon, Touro Law clinic faculty and attorneys, together with students enrolled in the Disaster Law Clinic, will be hosting a walk-in clinic for Sandy-affected households to meet individually and have questions answered about disaster recovery.
This community event is free of charge and open to the public.
