Law Professor/Law Students Collaborate on BP/Katrina Case Study with Critical Incident Analysis Academy

Law Professor Mitch Crusto, Loyola Law student/Tulane University Scholar-in-Residence D’Ann Penner, and selected Loyola Law students attended a meeting held on June 9-11, 2010, with The Academy for Critical Incident Analysis (“Academy”) at John Jay College of Criminal Justice (CUNY) to collaborate on a BP/Katrina disaster case study. “Displacement as an Obstacle to Recovery” was the conference theme which focused on the outward migration of people away from the City of New Orleans and the Gulf Region as a major obstacle to recovery of the City. Last year, the Academy, funded by the Dart Foundation, gathered with scholars and stakeholders at Virginia Tech to address the aftermath of the Cho killings.
