Mitchell Hamline School of Law uses a wide range of methods to communicate information with the law school community about campus emergencies, the closure of facilities and the campus, and the suspension of operations.
All students, faculty and staff are encouraged to signup to the Campus Emergency Alert system.
Decisions of these types are made in consultation with a range of personnel and departments, depending upon the unique situation at hand. More on Weather-related campus closings…
Tools used to alert the community of changes include:
Campus Emergency Alerts
The law school uses the E2 Campus Emergency Alert system to send timely information to subscribers about class and facility changes due to severe weather, communicate on-campus emergencies, and share information about relevant emergencies within the law school community. The E2 Campus Emergency Alert sends subscribers a text, and/or email (subscribers determine which and how many alert types they wish).
To register for these emergency alerts, visit agresso.mitchellhamline.edu/MHSLAlert
Students should log in to Student Records and update emergency alert contact info there.

At Mitchell Hamline
If severe weather leads officials at the law school to decide to cancel classes and/or suspend normal operations, the information is communicated as an alert on the Mitchell Hamline front page: mitchellhamline.edu
The law school also uses television and radio stations to communicate information about cancelled classes and suspension of normal operations. This information is shared with and though television and radio. This information is then shared on the stations’ websites and television programming.
