Lawline, the nation’s leading online CLE provider, announced on August 31, 2017 that it will be providing free Continuing Legal Education (CLE) courses on disaster relief nationwide through the end of the year to help those in need and to support any attorney affected by or offering assistance to those affected by Hurricane Harvey. According to Lawline: "We hope these courses will empower attorneys with actionable steps on how to contribute to relief efforts for Harvey and beyond."

One of the courses, "Utilizing Government Contracts For Disaster Relief and Hazard Mitigation 2017 Update" was initially presented live on July 11, 2017 by Miles & Stockbridge lawyers Raymond Monroe and Stephen Ramaley.

In this course, Monroe and Ramaley address the laws and regulations applicable to the expenditure of grant funding, paying particular attention to the use of grant-funded contracts as a means to accomplish grant objectives. This course draws on their experiences, as well as lessons learned from DHS OIG audit reports, to outline best practices and strategies for achieving grant objectives within the confines of the numerous and shifting regulatory regimes.

The courses are CLE accredited in 20+ states, including Texas, so licensed attorneys can gain CLE credit along with resources to assist disaster victims.  The courses are available at no charge nationwide through 2017 and are available to anyone, regardless of attorney status.
