Students at the majority of South Florida’s law schools returned to campus Wednesday after an extended Labor Day weekend due to Hurricane Dorian, which avoided a direct collision with the Sunshine State but still prompted university officials to cancel classes.

But it wasn’t business as usual in the central and Northeast corner of the state, where law schools remained closed because of the powerful storm. Orlando’s two law campuses—Florida A&M University College of Law and Barry University Dwayne O. Andreas School of Law—each remained closed Wednesday. Florida A&M will reopen Thursday, while officials at Barry were scheduled to announce reopening plans Wednesday afternoon. The Florida Coastal School of Law in Jacksonville was also closed Tuesday and Wednesday, with plans to reopen Thursday. That campus already has Nov. 26 designed as a potential storm make-up day on its fall semester calendar.
