The site of New Orleans will provide a unique opportunity for pulling together criminal justice
lessons learned from Alabama, Louisiana, Mississippi and other states affected by last summer’s
Hurricane Katrina, to see first hand its impact on the criminal justice system and to hear
recommendations from lawyers, judges and corrections officials directly affected about how
criminal justice systems throughout the country might be better prepared to respond to such
disasters in the future.
