On March 16th, Santa Clara County ordered residents to shelter in place and all non-essential businesses to close. That same day, Santa Clara University School of Law transitioned to remote learning for students. At this time, the University has canceled all on-campus events through June 30, 2020, and has moved all summer classes to a virtual format as well.
If you are a law student with an issue accessing classes due to lack of internet, please reach out to Law Technology or Student Services. Please direct your questions to your professors on how they are delivering their content. The Law School is asking each professor to communicate directly with students about how to access their classes.
As part of moving to remote classes, Santa Clara Law has decided to issue pass/no pass grades for the spring semester. Students will be able to keep their scholarships, regardless of GPA, until such time that they are able to receive letter grades again. Our Strategic Initiatives Fund is being utilized to cover scholarships and other financial needs for our students during this crisis.
Thank you to everyone in our community who has come together during this crisis. What makes Santa Clara Law such an amazing place to learn and work is the resiliency and compassion exhibited by each of you despite, and in response to, these challenges.
