Amid the COVID-19 pandemic and in an effort to help protect the health of our communities, Baylor Law has suspended all official events hosted by the Law School through May 1. We will continue to monitor guidance from health officials as it relates to events that are scheduled after May 1.
Remote course instruction for Baylor Law students began March 16 and will continue through the remainder of the spring quarter.
We place a high priority on the safety and well-being of the entire Baylor Law Family, and we are grateful for your partnership in this effort.
