Classes during Final Four

   The last few days have seen a flurry of emails from the Offices of the President and Provost regarding the effects of the upcoming Final Four games on University facilities, schedules and classes.  This is just to remind everyone at the Law School that in these matters, as with weather-related closings, we follow the lead of the University in deciding whether and when classes will be canceled.  With that in mind, here is what we know to date about the effects of the games on our schedules:
 
1)  The law school building and law library will close at 4pm on Saturday, consistent with the University's decision to close all buildings two hours before the basketball game starts.    Streets surrounding UofL will be closed beginning 6pm on Saturday.
 
2) If the men's team wins its Final Four game on Saturday evening, then Monday classes beginning after 4:15pm will be canceled.
     If the womens' team wins its Final Four game on Sunday evening, then Tuesday classes beginning after 4:15pm will be canceled.
 
3) If the men play in the final game Monday evening, then the law school building and law library will again close early on Monday, and street closings will be implemented Monday evening around the University.
 
4)  We have so far had no official announcement of whether, in the event of either team winning a national championship, any further classes will be canceled.  I encourage everyone to watch for official announcements from the Provost, sent to our UofL email accounts, concerning any further effects on our classes arising out of the NCAA basketball championships.

 

Students are advised in addition to check with their professors regarding any makeup classes that may have to be scheduled due to these University closures.
