Will New Orleans Law Schools Shut Down for Fall Semester?

TulaneOur thoughts and prayers continue to go out to our tax colleagues in New Orleans.  Susan Krinsky, Associate Dean at Tulane, has raised the possibility that the entire Fall 2005 semester may be lost: 

I believe that Tulane will announce a plan for making up the lost time within the next week. This may involve classes on weekends and during what would otherwise be vacations, but we will of course do everything possible to minimize dislocation for our students. I believe that the worst-case scenario is that we will lose the entire semester, but given the communications difficulties, I have no definitive information at this moment.

Our sister Clinical Law Prof Blog, edited by Tulane faculty members Pam Metzger and Katherine Maris Mattes, is serving as an information hub for Tulane and other affected law schools.  For more on the devastation at Tulane University, see today's Chronicle of Higher Education here.

Update:  Emory has established this temporary web site for Tulane to facilitate communications between Dean Ponoroff and the Tulane Law School community.   See Emory's press release here.
