Re: Security Threat

Dear students, faculty and staff,
Today we have received information from an internet discussion board regarding a copycat threat of violence to the Hastings community. We have met with representatives of the FBI and the San Francisco Police and in light of the advice they have given us, we have decided to close the law school immediately. Offices will reopen and classes resume tomorrow (Thursday) as usual.
