Restricted Access to Law School Academic Buildings after 8 p.m. Sunday Night

The following email was sent to the Law School community on March 21, 2020.

Dear Law School Community,

I write to make sure you have seen the message that just went out from the University regarding building closures, in light of Governor Cuomo’s most recent Executive Order. 

For faculty, if there are items in your office that you need for teaching, research, or other purposes, please arrange to get them before 8 p.m. on Sunday, March 22.

For administrators and staff, we hope you already have everything you need at home to telework.  If not, you will similarly need to retrieve those items this weekend by the same deadline.

For students with offices in Law School academic buildings (e.g., journals), or who have necessary materials in lockers or other spaces in those buildings, you will also need to retrieve anything you need by the same deadline.

If access to a Law School academic building is absolutely indispensable to a faculty member’s ability to teach their classes in the coming week or for a student’s ability to complete their academic work, please contact the Dean’s Office as soon as possible at

Please note that the Law School Residence Halls will remain open.


As always, thank you for your patience, cooperation, and understanding.
