Report calls for increased role of legal community in disaster planning
23 August 2011
The National Pro Bono Resource Centre has released its research report Emergency Preparedness and Disaster Planning for the Legal Profession in Australia which is endorsed by the Law Council of Australia, and includes a step by step guide on how to create a disaster response plan.
The report calls on Australia’s state and territory legal communities to adopt disaster response plans to deal with emergencies such as those which decimated parts of Queensland and Victoria earlier this year.
A PDF version of the report is available, as is a Word version of the second part, titled A Guide to preparing a Disaster Response Plan for your legal community.
Please contact the Centre if you would like to be sent a hard copy of the report.
