In light of recent fires and natural disasters, LA Law Library has developed a list of legal resources and information about preparing for, and recovering form, disasters. These resources are designed to foster peace of mind by assisting with preparedness and assist families in caring for loved ones, protecting property and rebuilding after a significant event. The information contained in this resource guide includes legal forms such as powers of attorney, resources for those charged with caring for another, disaster services hotlines, FEMA appeal letters and much more.

This list focuses on legal materials that are accessible off-site (via the internet) and free legal support services. Of course, there are also many, many more resources within the Law Library’s collection onsite, so feel free to visit in person or inquire by email for assistance with legal research and access to legal resources on this or any other subject.

In 1621, the Plymouth colonists and Wampanoag Indians shared an autumn harvest feast that is acknowledged today as one of the first Thanksgiving celebrations in the colonies. For more than two centuries, days of thanksgiving were celebrated by individual colonies and states. It wasn't until 1863, in the midst of the Civil War, that President Abraham Lincoln proclaimed a national Thanksgiving Day.
