Instruction for our JD and LLM programs is being delivered remotely through summer semester. 

Instruction for the undergraduate legal studies program and master’s  program in conflict and dispute resolution (aka CRES), which are on the term schedule, will be delivered remotely through summer term as well.

The university has suspended all on-campus operations except for critical services to comply with the governor's stay-at-home order. To be in compliance, the following events are canceled until further notice:
