Plans to Begin in Fall 2020


Ready for Our 2020 Entering Students

We remain fully committed to a robust launch of both Period 1 in mid-June (for our 2020 entering class of 2-year J.D. students) and the August start of the fall semester for our 3- and 4-year J.D. students.

In the event that precautionary measures remain necessary, we will be in touch with our matriculants about necessary and prudent measures that will assure teaching continuity while putting everyone’s safety and wellbeing first.

In the meantime, enjoy learning about our students and our vibrant campus by exploring our virtual tour, and join in some of the optional experiences we’re offering.

SCALE, Period 1 to be Held Remotely

SCALE, Period 1 which commences on June 15 and ends on August 27 will be conducted remotely through the use of Zoom for the entire period because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Classes in SCALE, Period 2 will commence on the morning of Tuesday, September 1st.  

We know that the decision to conduct classes remotely during Period 1 raises many other questions including: 1) the move-in date for the Southwestern residences; 2) the nature of final exams and the grading system that will be utilized; 3) the procedures to obtain books and other class materials - among other matters. We want to assure you that we are addressing these issues now and will keep SCALE entering students updated as soon as these matters are decided.
