Emergency Message on Tropical Storm/Hurricane Isaac
August 27, 2012
The Law Center, along with the entire LSU Community, is closely monitoring Tropical Storm/Hurricane Isaac and its potential impact on Baton Rouge and surrounding areas. As is our custom, the Law Center will be guided by the LSU A&M campus in determining whether campus closures and class cancellations are in order. No firm determination has been made yet, but based on the information currently available to us, it is likely that the LSU campus, including the Law Center, will be closed beginning tomorrow (Tuesday) and that all classes will be cancelled. We expect a final determination later today as more reliable weather alerts are issued. If classes are cancelled, please note that all related and extracurricular activities at the Law Center also will be cancelled.
