NYLS Offices Closed January 4, 2018 for Winter Storm; Building Open for Bar Study

Dear NYLS Community,

This evening, it was announced that the New York City public schools will be closed tomorrow due to expected significant snowfall. As a result, New York Law School is closing its administrative offices tomorrow and all meetings, and events are cancelled. Despite these cancellations, the Law School building will be open for use by community members from 7 a.m. to 1 a.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 all scheduled meetings, and activities on Friday, January 5. 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 stay safe and warm.

Dear Students,

We hope you are all safe. All morning final exams will be delayed by one hour. Due to significant police and emergency response at the Port Authority bus terminal, subway service is currently disrupted. Please do not go to Port Authority if you are commuting to school. Please make alternative arrangements to travel to NYLS. The subway disruptions are as follows:

  • 1, 2, 3, N, Q, R, W & 7 Trains are bypassing  (not stopping) Times Square in both directions
  • A, C & E trains are bypassing 42 St/Port Authority-Bus Terminal in both directions.
  • There is no S 42 St shuttle service in both directions.
  • There is no B train service between Bedford Park Blvd and Brighton Beach in both directions.
  • E trains are stopping along the F line between 36 St (QNS) and W 4 St-Washington Sq in both directions.
  • These service changes are because of an NYPD investigation at Times Sq-42 St.

For up-to-date information, please visit www.mta.info.

We will be back in touch as soon as possible with any updates. Again, please stay safe.
