Barbara Kraut Retires
After 30 Years at the Bar

By Valerie Zurblis
For 25 years, Barbara Kraut has
been known as the go-to person for
Continuing Legal Education at the
Nassau Academy of Law, the education-
al arm of the Nassau County Bar
Association and one of the largest and
most respected providers of continuing
legal education for attorneys on Long
Island. She is arguably the one person
most responsible for keeping Nassau
attorneys current with the law. After
overseeing thousands of CLE seminars,
helping tens of thousands of attorneys
and jurists, and working with 21 Deans,
Barbara has decided to retire from the
Her announcement was met with sur-
prise, but also was a chance for many,
particularly some of the past deans of
the Academy, to express their gratitude
for all that Barbara has accomplished.
NCBA President Peter J. Mancuso, who
also served as the Dean of the Academy
(2005-06), noted, What a wonderful per-
son she is, and what a tremendous job

Louisiana Law Students Gain Insight on Sandy Disaster Response

By Valerie Zurblis
Last month six law students from
Southern University Law Center in Baton
Rouge, Louisiana paid a visit to the Nassau
County Bar Association to learn how attor-
neys coordinated their efforts to assist res-
idents harmed last year from Superstorm
Sandy. The students, many of whom were
survivors of Hurricane Katrina, brought
with them a strong belief and passion for
helping others and were impressed with all
the help that came in from all over the

country - especially the many lawyers who
came to help residents.
One student, Iriane Lee, from New
Orleans, had to relocate to Houston after
Katrina. I was in awe of all the work that
had to be done, she said. The Sandy peo-
ple were worse off than myself. I knew how
I felt at the time, and I wanted to find some
way to serve other people.
NCBA Second Vice President Martha
Krisel explained to the students how NCBA
quickly put in place free legal consultation
clinics for residents, based on the model cre-

which encompassed a triad of government,
private and not-for-profit entities working
together to best help the people. 'The beauty
is that this arrangement is non-adversarial,
she said. 'The government working with vol-
unteer lawyers is the only way to achieve suc-
cess. We all have limited resources.
Krisel encouraged the students to volun-
teer to get hands-on experience. Don't give
up, get more experience. It will pay off, she
advised. 'The law is a great profession, but
it's more challenging than ever.
