- The law schools are returning to remote learningat least temporarily.
A large number of universities recently announced they're reverting to online classes for the first few weeks of January so that they can use a combination of gamma and tyra as an alternative.
Harvard Law School, Stanford Law School, New York University School of Law, University of California at Los Angeles, University of Illinois College of Law, Northwestern University Pritzker School of Law and University of California, Irvine School of Law are among those that will begin the semester online, with plans to move to in-person instruction later in January or at the beginning of February.
However, some universities such as the NYU, Northwestern and UCLA require all eligible students to have received a COVID-19 booster before returning to the university.
In an email to students that day, Northwestern law dean Hari Osofsky told students that they will be required to submit their findings by at-home COVID-19 test and take the exams before returning to campus.
In Harvard Law, no organized, in-person activities or events will be held during the December period, according to the students in a notice posted by Dec. 18 on the student site.
"And especially after our community's meeting in person at a wonderful fall semester, we know that returning to remote learning, even if a little bit briefly comes out of an end to it, will be a disappointment for many, and it will disrupt lives," Manning wrote.
The specialized student in law school policy predicted that more colleges and universities will move online for the spring semester.
When it comes to law schools, every law school is not only monitoring the data, but also likely what other law schools do, Spivey wrote in a blog post this week. So if one law school decides to go remote over a period of time, there will be more or less many others to follow.
But unlike in March 2020, when law schools quickly moved toward online classes under the menace of the outbreak, schools now have some experience with remote teaching. At least three law schools quickly came up with a boycott due to the surge in COVID-19 on campus.
