Beyond the range of most news photos and personal stories, Hurricane Katrina has also had a devastating impact on the lives of many law students and professors, especially those at Tulane and Loyola-New Orleans. Hofstra announced this week, as did many other law schools, that it will be welcoming students from these schools as visiting students. The University has also set up the “Hofstra Helps” page on its web site, listing upcoming campus fund-raising events and other donation contacts. A Louisiana law professor’s message, posted to a listserv and later appearing on several law-related blogs, describes the staggering implications of the hurricane on the region’s lawyers, legal profession, and courts, and on those who depend upon them.
