FAMU College of Law Updates on Hurricane Irma

FAMU College of Law in Orlando is scheduled to reopen Wednesday, September 13

Hurricane Irma has initiated a path toward the United States, and will likely make landfall near the Florida Keys and the west coast of Florida Sunday, Sept, 10.  Because the track has shifted west, once the system passes the Central Florida area, it will move toward the Florida Panhandle.  Because of updated information, the Florida A&M University (FAMU) main campus in Tallahassee will be closed through Friday, Sept. 15 (an e-mail was released through FAMU INFO detailing this information).  However, the FAMU College of Law in Orlando is still scheduled to reopen Wednesday, Sept. 13.  The College of Law administration will continue to monitor conditions, and will update the law school community with any changes.
