Gulf Recovery Network
Co-Presidents: Sharlene Morris [email]; Morgan Lavan [email]
The Gulf Recovery Network (GRN) is a student-run organization that was created in response to the havoc wreaked against the New Orleans area by Hurricane Katrina in 2005. Every year since its inception, GRN has coordinated a service trip to New Orleans, enabling GW Law students to participate in legal work or physical assistance in an effort to rebuild the area. Participants enjoy the opportunity to gain meaningful work experience over their winter break, engaging in what may be their first pro bono experience of their legal careers. This spring, GRN hopes to host a discussion with experts on the legal issues that have developed as a result of the recent tragedies that have hit the Gulf Coast.
