Baylor Law will begin the Fall 2020 Quarter on Monday, August 24, using a hybrid on-campus/virtual learning model, with as few fully online classes as possible.
Every effort will be made to ensure that students will have access to the full-range of Baylor Law’s exceptional support services—either in-person or remotely—and the Law School will adhere to the guidelines of federal, state, and local public health authorities in an effort to ensure the safety and wellbeing of all Baylor Law faculty, staff, and students.
Adherence to current guidelines on the use of masks and social distancing will be absolute, and students, faculty, and staff who do not abide by the guidelines will be asked to leave the Law Center.
Baylor is requiring a negative COVID-19 test of all students and employees coming to campus for the Fall quarter. If you are a student taking classes exclusively online during Fall quarter and do not anticipate coming to the law school, you do not need to take the test currently. The test kit has a shelf life of 12 months. You must take the test prior to being allowed on campus.
Baylor University has resources available for students, including law students, during this time. Information is available at www.baylor.edu/coronavirus.
Lockdowns, quarantines, and other restrictions on public gatherings, including classes at the Law Center, can be put in place at a moment’s notice. Important information will be sent via email to the Baylor Law community. Every attempt will be made to keep the most up-to-date information about classes and accessing the Law Center on the Baylor Law coronavirus webpage (www.baylor.edu/law/coronavirus).
Faculty, staff and students should be prepared for the possibility that fall classes could go online only, should it be mandated by the University, county or state.Previous Updates
