Akron Law Emergency Action Guidelines

Akron Law Emergency Action Guidelines

These signs will give you the most important details on how to respond efficiently and effectively in the event of an emergency. They cover a number of emergencies such as fire, medical, power outage, hazardous materials, bomb threat, active shooter or violent incident, and tornado.

The University of Akron Emergency Management team’s goal is to integrate emergency planning, response, recovery and mitigation for a number of hazards, both manmade and natural disasters, into the daily operations at the University of Akron. As a Disaster Resistant University, the University of Akron promotes a disaster resistant culture on campus through education, mitigation projects, and well-practiced emergency plans and procedures. By working towards these goals we can feel confident about the continuity of the business of education and research, in the event of emergencies or disasters.

There is one of these signs posted in every classroom, as well as in general areas of the building such as the student lounge and law library.

Akron Law will co-sponsor cutting edge seminar on “The Social and Legal Implications of Same Sex Relationships”

Akron Law will co-sponsor cutting edge seminar on “The Social and Legal Implications of Same Sex Relationships”.
This program, which will examine the practical legal issues for same sex couples arising out of everyday life including divorce, adoption, probate and child development, is a collaborative, interdisciplinary effort of the local family courts (domestic relations, probate, and juvenile), the judges of those courts, law professors, family development experts, social workers, and psychologists, and the practicing bar. During the program, experts from these areas will grapple with emerging and complex issues surrounding those involved in same sex relationships.

The program will take place on Thursday, September 11, 2014 from 8 a.m. – 4:15 p.m. at the Quaker Station in Akron, OH. Stephanie Coontz, a nationally recognized and award-winning author who is known for her willingness to challenge the historical narrative of traditional families and institutions, will offer the keynote address. Ms. Coontz’ books have been published in twelve languages and she has authored articles for inclusion in publications such as the New York Times and Journal of Marriage and Family. Stephanie makes regular television and radio appearances to discuss her areas of expertise.
