Hurricane Ian continues to strengthen and we are now under a Hurricane Watch as well as a Tropical Storm Warning. This means that Charleston is likely to receive tropical storm strength winds with a possibility of hurricane strength winds in the next 48 hours. We are also under a Storm Surge Warning. As such, we are taking several proactive measures to protect your safety while continuing our essential functions.
All buildings, including the Law Library, will be closed Thursday through and including Sunday. We will reopen on Monday at the usual time unless you hear differently.
All classes on Thursday and Friday will be held by Zoom. Students and faculty should use their regular classroom’s account to hold class. For example, if your class is usually in 333, you’ll use the Zoom link for that room. Zoom classroom links are attached. Unless you hear differently, classes will resume in-person on Monday. We will actively monitor the forecast to determine whether widespread power outages, etc., make Zoom instruction impractical on Friday.
Friday’s assessments are being rescheduled to Monday. Dean Lawton will send more information on the assessment makeup schedule.
EVENTS AND MEETINGS
All in-person events and meetings from Thursday through Sunday are cancelled.
The Law School’s Emergency Preparedness Team will continue to monitor the weather forecast and instructions from local, state, and federal government officials. I will continue to keep the community informed of any developments.
