Fall 2020

Subject to approval from New York State, we will now begin all classes on Tuesday, August 11, with orientation for first-year students to begin on Monday, August 10. This earlier start date will minimize travel to and from campus and help to keep the community safe. It also allows the Law School to complete all classes by November 11 and to administer all exams in-person and on campus before the Thanksgiving holiday. For more information and the latest updates, visit our Coronavirus webpage.
