Law Center to reopen next week, closed through Friday, Sept. 5

Dear Students, Staff and Colleagues:
            Per my earlier e mail, I met this afternoon with Chancellors Martin and Richardson as well as various other LSU officials engaged in dealing with the aftermath of Hurricane Gustav.  The main campus will announce shortly that it will remain closed on Thursday and Friday. After reviewing the situation with others, I have concluded that it would be appropriate for us to follow suit. Thus we, too, will remain closed for the rest of this week. Our building is in good shape and we fully expect to resume classes early next week. Indeed, I think it is fair to say that we all are anxious to get back to business as soon as it is safe and feasible to do so. But we cannot reasonably expect you to return with daily life in the broader LSU and Baton Rouge communities as disrupted as it currently is. We also understand that many of you have issues to deal with at your homes that will require your continuing attention this week.
            I want to assure you that we will be dealing thoughtfully and expeditiously with the various consequences of canceling classes, including whatever deadlines may be affected. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation, and please continue to monitor the main campus website ( ) for further updates on post-Gustav developments. And do take great care as you move around the area. Cordially, Jack Weiss
