The current difficulties managing the worldwide response and recovery to the Covid-19 pandemic highlights the need for attorneys to take the lead on behalf of their clients and communities in an effort to create communities more capable of resisting and, if necessary, quickly recovering from natural disasters and other extreme events.

The recently published American Bar Association’s Community Resilience Handbook draws together contributions from the legal community and other professional disciplines to demonstrate that improved community resilience is practical, achievable, and in the best interests of attorneys and their clients. Columbia attorney Elle E. Klein authored a chapter on Standard of Care: Lawyers’ Legal and Ethical Obligations to Clients and Community.

Originally published in American Bar Association’s Community Resilience Handbook - 2020.

Please see full Chapter below for more information.
