The Law School's Bad Weather Policy

In light of snow being forecast for Thursday, 1/7/2010, we should all be reminded that the Law School follows the University’s bad weather policy and announcements.

 

If the University announces that classes are closed for the day, then the Law School is closed that day.  If the University announces that classes will be delayed (starting at 10:00 am, for example) then Law School classes beginning  before 10:00 am are cancelled and classes that begin at or after 10:00 am will meet at their regular time and for their regular length of time.

 

The University announces its bad weather decisions at the top of the University homepage, www.louisville.edu,  by direct email and text message to those of have signed up for this service and through local media.

 

The Law School’s policy is written in paragraph X of the Student Handbook, which I quote here:

 

“X.  Bad Weather ScheduleThe Law School follows the University’s lead in all weather-related cancellations and delays.   1)  We will cancel classes up to a certain time and begin with our full class schedule at that point. For instance, if we delay opening until 10:00 a.m., all classes that begin before 10:00 a.m. will be cancelled.  Classes meeting at 10:00 a.m. and later will meet at their regular times and will include the full instruction period. 2)  For purposes of this policy, evening classes will be defined as any classes beginning at or after 4:15 p.m. 3)  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, www.louisville.edu; e-mails sent to all students and employees on their Groupwise accounts; a recorded message at 852-5555. 

These are the only venues through which we can guarantee accurate information.  They are the first three methods by which we will communicate, although we will continue to announce our decisions through media as well.”
