Law School Bad Weather Policy

  As winter approaches, please keep in mind that occasionally classes may be canceled or delayed for weather-related reasons.   The Law School's policy is in general to follow the lead of the University - we will not ordinarily make our own determinations of when to cancel or delay classes as a unit.  Students may sign up for the University's Alert system at in order to receive text messages of any weather-related cancellation or delay.  

The Law School's official policy is available in our Student Handbook and is reproduced for your information below.

The School of Law follows the University's lead in all weather-related cancellations and delays. Please note that the University will provide official school closing information in the following ways: A notice at the top of the University home page (; e-mails sent to all students and employees on their official university e-mail accounts; a recorded message at 852-5555.
