Weather-Related and Other Unscheduled Building Closures
When the University closes the Law School building for weather-related or other reasons, no classes will be held on campus. Online classes will proceed as planned, and classes scheduled to meet in person will generally be shifted to online formats at their originally scheduled times. In some instances, an instructor may choose to reschedule a class rather than to hold it online. Upon receiving word that the building is closed, instructors should immediately alert students about plans to hold class remotely or any alternative arrangements.
