Hurricane Legal Resources and Disaster Relief and Recovery

In this guide, the Law Library of Louisiana has compiled hurricane legal information and disaster relief and recovery resources.

If you are low-income and need legal representation related to Hurricane Ida or other disaster relief and recovery legal issues, Acadiana Legal Service Corporation and Southeast Louisiana Legal Services provide free legal assistance to those that qualify. Please do not visit legal service providers in person during this time. Due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic as well as loss of power/damage at legal aid offices, all organizations are encouraging people to contact them over the telephone, or by applying for services online.

If you are looking for general legal resources (not specifically about disaster relief and recovery) for self-represented litigants and people in court without an attorney, including referrals to free and low-cost legal representation, please check out the Law Library's online guide.

Due to the library's limited opening to the public during the COVID19 pandemic, Lexis-Nexis, Thomson Reuters/Westlaw, and FastCase are offering FREE ACCESS to the library's Lexis, Lexis Digital Library, Westlaw Edge, and FastCase subscriptions for our public patrons. Click here for more information.

The Law Library hopes you are staying safe and if you need further assistance, don't hesitate to call us at 504-310-2400 (toll-free in LA only at 800-820-3038) or email us at
