Inclement Weather Policy for Law School

In the event of inclement weather, we will place information about the law school and library operating hours and classes in three places:

We will try to have the decision made and posted at all three places before 6:45 AM for morning closures, and by 4:15 PM for evening closures.

Please note – Law school closings are not part of the University “Mason Alert” e-mail system. While the Law School will often follow the University on closing decisions, sometimes it does not. So, it is imperative that you check one of the above three places for the most accurate information concerning the law school and law library's opening or closing.

In the event that there is a power outage in Arlington, the best source of information will be the media announcements or assuming the telephone is working, the telephone message at 703-993-8000.

In all instances of bad weather, leave additional time to arrive safely at your destination.


If you have questions about these procedures, please ask your supervisor or contact Karen Newman, Director of Administrative Services 703-993-8047.
