Severe Weather Plan - School of Law

The University ceremony will remain in the Brookings Quadrangle even during heavy rain and inclement weather. In the event of severe weather, you will need to follow the instructions below. Information is subject to changes.  (updated 5/17/15)  


If Washington University adopts the Severe Weather plan at 7 a.m. on Friday, the University-wide Ceremony will convert to an undergraduate only ceremony. Due to space constraints, Law School Students and their guests will not attend.

Please note the time change for the photo. 

10:00 a.m. - the Law School class photos will be rescheduled and JD, LLM, JSD, & MJS graduates will proceed to Frick Forum in Olin’s Knight and Bauer Halls for a indoor photo.

Every effort will be made to hold the Law School Recognition Ceremony at 11:15 a.m. in the WUSTL Athletics Complex, Varsity Gym. Please consult the law school home page for updates. 

Law Students will be notified if the Severe Weather plan goes into effect via, the Law School homepage on the website and digital signage in the law school building (AB Hall). Law Students and their guests may also check the Washington University homepage and listen to local TV and radio news broadcasts.
