Covid19 Update: New Training Videos, In-Person Decision Coming Soon

Oct. 20, 2020

Dear Students, Faculty and Staff,

University Update & COL Status

Provided the health metrics remain positive, beginning next Monday, Oct. 26, the University of Arizona will allow in-person and flex in-person classes of 50 or fewer students to begin meeting face to face.

  • Thank you to the more than 200 students who completed our survey about resuming law classes face to face.  A decision about College of Law plans for next week will be announced later this week.
  • When law classes do resume in-person instruction, all students will continue to have the option to attend remotely.  Resuming in-person classes is something you may opt in to do, but it is not required.
  • See the latest College of Law Instruction Stage information here.  


Reentry Training Videos

To help you know what to expect when the College of Law resumes in-person instruction, please watch these two reentry videos.
