  • Temporary Revision to Distance Learning Policy May 2020: In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Lewis & Clark Law School students were required to take 4 weeks of spring 2020 classes online, many summer 2020 classes have been moved online, and at least some fall 2020 and spring 2021 classes will be partly or completely online. These circumstances require a temporary suspension of paragraph 6.2 of the Lewis & Clark Distance Learning Policy (Nov. 2018 revision), which provides that “Lewis & Clark JDstudents may take no more than 12 credits via Distance Learning towards the JD degree at Lewis & Clark, and only after successfully completing all required first year law courses.” Spring 2020 classes that were moved online will not count towards the 12-credit limit on distance learning classes. Lewis & Clark Law School classes offered fully or partly online during summer 2020, fall 2020, and spring 2021 also will not count towards the 12-credit limit. Paragraph 6.3 of the Distance Learning Policy, which governs the circumstances under which Lewis & Clark students can take distance learning classes offered at other law schools, remains in effect.
