COVID-19 Update

March 23, 2020

Letter from Law School Dean Jennifer Johnson

Our faculty, students and staff have been supportive and flexible as we work through these turbulent times together. We have taken a number of actions to keep our students, faculty and staff safe and at the same time, ensure that we maintain our high standard of legal education.

Professors are now teaching their classes remotely and will continue to do so through the rest of the semester. Our clinical programs are operating remotely as well. All exams will be administered online. We are applying many of the best practices from our recently developed distance learning LLM program to all of our other law programs.

Whenever possible, staff are working remotely.

The Boley library is closed but our resourceful librarians are available via internet chat, phone and email, and have made many research programs accessible remotely.

We have postponed or canceled all of our spring events including Commencement. Our admissions preview day has been re-imagined as a preview week, all online.

The law school campus buildings are not open to the public in accordance with Oregon Governor Brown’s executive order. Visitors to campus may explore the outside areas around our buildings, and our beautiful backyard, Tryon Creek State Park. Here is a self-explore guide

I am proud of our community in these trying times! I hope this finds you well, and that you take all precautions to stay well.

Best regards,

Dean Jennifer Johnson
