Delayed Opening: 10:00 a.m. on March 22

I hope you are safe and warm. Please be advised that due to significant weather related disruptions outside of the city, where many students, faculty, and staff reside, NYLS classes will begin at 10:00 a.m. tomorrow. To that end, all classes and events scheduled before 10:00 a.m. are cancelled and will be rescheduled. The campus and library will open at their normal times. If you plan to take the New York Law Exam tomorrow at NYLS, please plan to leave yourself an abundance of extra time to get to School, or simply plan to take the exam from home if you are concerned that transit delays could affect your being on-time, or cause unnecessary stress before an important exam. ‎

Please exercise all necessary caution and stay tuned to your e-mail, nyls.edu, text messages, as well as mass media, for all updates. For staff members who may experience difficulty reporting to work by 10:00 a.m., please contact your supervisors.

All my best,

NYLS Offices Closed Friday, January 5, 2018 for Winter Storm; Building Open for Bar Study

Dear NYLS Community,

I hope you are safe and warm. The storm has caused significant traffic and transit disruptions throughout the tri-state area. Although City Schools will open, many of our community members live in the counties surrounding the five boroughs and the conditions are not expected to be clear or easy. Accordingly, New York Law School is closing its administrative offices tomorrow and all meetings, and events are cancelled. To the extent staff can work from home, we ask them to do so.

Despite these cancellations, the Law School building will be open for use by community members from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m. The Library will be open from ‎10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Bar takers will have access to the NYLS campus but should contact their commercial providers about class schedules. Those students seeking to study on campus should check the NYLS webpage for any potential changes in library or campus operations.

We expect that NYLS will resume normal library and building hours on Saturday, January 6.  Please watch for emails, texts, and voice messages from our NotifyNYLS emergency communication system to ensure you have the latest updates.

Thank you, and please take care of yourselves, your loved ones, and neighbors.
