Florida's 12 Law Schools Are Closed Through Wednesday

IrmaLegal Times, Florida's 12 Law Schools Closed Until Wednesday, At Least:

Florida's 12 law schools remained closed Monday as the remnants of Hurricane Irma churned northward out of the Sunshine State.

It was unlikely that any of those schools would reopen before Wednesday, and several have already announced class cancellations for the remainder of the week.

Some schools began closing as early as last Wednesday in preparation for the storm, meaning students will have missed at least a week of classes once they resume. The schools will likely add classes in some format to meet the American Bar Association's course time requirements.

It was unclear Monday morning whether any of the state's law schools sustained major damage, and officials had only just begun to assess their campuses.
