Due to flash flood watch in NYC, all evening classes (after 6 p.m.) are suspended today, Monday, Oct. 25. Faculty will determine if classes will be conducted remotely. Library circulation will close at 5 p.m. and be open for study until 10 p.m.


Due to the Flash Flood Watch, starting at 3:55 p.m. today, in-person classes will be suspended. Faculty may decide whether to hold class remotely via Zoom or plan a make-up class later in the semester.


Dear Brooklyn Law School Community:

The intensity and impact of last night’s unprecedented weather caught us flat-footed. Neither we nor our fellow NYC law schools had the foresight to cancel evening classes yesterday, and many students (and teachers) paid the price for that. I can only apologize and say that I deeply regret this and will follow up later about what the school can do to make up for this to those who were affected.

We are not going to compound this mistake. MTA service has not been restored, and the city is still in a state of emergency. Accordingly, all in-person day and evening classes are suspended today, Thursday, September 2. Library study areas will be available for student use from 9–5. All employees can work from home, though offices will be accessible to faculty and staff who want to use them. As when we cancelled in-person classes earlier in the semester, we anticipate most classes will be conducted on Zoom instead, but individual professors may choose to cancel class and have a make-up session later in the semester.

We expect a return to normal operations tomorrow. All best, and again, my apologies to those who bore the brunt of this historic storm.

Sincerely yours,

Michael T. Cahill (he/him)
President, Joseph Crea Dean & Professor of Law
