Dear Law School Community,
In light of the announcement from campus, all Law School classes will be conducted by distance learning beginning on Tuesday, March 10. This will continue through March 26. Also, all Law School in-person events will be cancelled during this time.
I know that some instructors are giving mid-term exams this week and next. Obviously, all exams will need to be take-home during this time.
As of now, we plan that the Law School will remain open and our regular operations will continue during this time. For example, we expect the Library will remain open.
As I said yesterday in my message, if staff feel it advisable to work remotely, they should talk with their supervisor. Every effort should be made to accommodate these requests.
I very much appreciate everyone’s patience as we deal with this uncertain and fast moving situation. This is a time when I feel so fortunate to be part of such a warm and supportive community.
