NY Law School & Cardozo Caught In Coronavirus Connection

Law.com reports….New York Law School Cancels Classes Due to Coronavirus, Cardozo Disinfects Premises

Students from both schools had contact with a Midtown lawyer now hospitalized with the coronavirus.

The arrival of the coronavirus in New York is taking a toll on two of the city’s law schools.

New York Law School canceled classes Wednesday, Thursday and Friday in order to clean and disinfect its building, while the Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law also disinfected its campus on Tuesday. One student from each school had come into contact with a lawyer currently being treated for COVID-19.

That lawyer, a 50-year old who works in the Midtown trusts and estates firm Lewis and Garbuz, was New York state’s second confirmed case of coronavirus. There are now six confirmed cases—four are neighbors or members of the lawyer’s family.

The Cardozo student who was exposed to the now-hospitalized attorney is currently in a voluntary quarantine, according to an email Tuesday from law dean Melanie Leslie.
