Inclement Weather Policy

Just a reminder about the law school's policy on inclement weather. Important note: The law school and the rest of the university do not always respond to a weather event in the same way. As a result, you should rely on communication from the law school to learn the operating status of the law school and the law library. Do not rely on public announcements made by the media or by the university because those announcements might not apply to the law school. The law school's official policy on inclement weather appears below.

If you are scheduled to work and the library is open, you are expected to arrive on time. Please call me, Mike or Maya if weather conditions will make it impossible to show up for your shift. Please be sure you have our home and cell phone numbers with you. In the event of inclement weather, we will communicate information about the operating status of the law school and the law library in three ways: 1) E-mail notice via the law school listservs, 2) Notice on the law school web site, and 3) Recording on the law school main telephone number (703-993-8000). For a weather event that develops overnight, we will try to make a decision and have it communicated before 7:30 a.m. the next morning.
