Below are resources to help you prepare to teach your course using online instructional technologies.
The university has a robust set of tools available to aid in teaching classes remotely. Zoom is an easy-to-use web conferencing tool to conduct and record live class meetings.

The College of Law is not open for visitors or tours, and all College of Law buildings are closed.
All students, faculty, and staff have been asked by the university to stay away from campus as much as possible, and the college is conducting all business online.
Per CDC recommendations, for your own health and safety and the wellbeing of the College of Law, University of Arizona and greater Tucson community, we ask that you not visit campus at this time.
The College of Law is moving as much information and access online as possible, including experiences and tours for admitted students. We greatly value our community here and are doing what we can to help you experience that, even as we're not able to host you on campus.
We will update this page as new resources become available. In the meantime, we encourage you to check out the University of Arizona's virtual tour.

Everyday Risk Reduction Actions
There is currently no vaccine to prevent coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). The best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed to this virus. CDC recommends everyday actions to help prevent the spread of respiratory diseases:
- Stay home when you are ill.
- Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
- Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
- Clean frequently touched surfaces and objects.
- Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
- If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. Always wash hands with soap and water if hands are visibly dirty.
