Law School Coronavirus/COVID-19 Updates

The University of Chicago is maintaining a Coronavirus Updates website including campus updates, health and travel guidance, resources, and other important and helpful information. Please use that page as your primary resource for COVID-19 information.

Current students will find the answers to many questions in the FAQs provided by the Dean of Students Office.

Law School Operations

  • Nearly all staff are working remotely and are available by email and phone.
  • The D’Angelo Law Library is open on a limited basis to Law School faculty, students and staff. Please refer to the library's 2020-21 Law Library Services guide for information about reservations, contactless book pick up, and more. The remote Ask a Librarian service is available for research assistance and other library questions.

Health Pact

  • When back on campus, we ask that everyone commit to protecting our community by following the UChicago Health Pact.

Events and Travel

  • All Law School events that were to take place in-person have been cancelled or postponed. Some of these events may be moved to an online format and we will communicate with attendees accordingly. Please check individual event pages for more information. 
  • The University has suspended all nonessential international and domestic University travel, effective immediately until further notice.

Bar Exams

Bar exam plans and policies remain in flux for several jurisdictions. The Law School continues to advocate for our graduates with jurisdictions around the country, often in conjunction with other law schools. Students can refer to this page of bar exam information and resources. This list of letters signed or co-signed by Dean Miles is a partial representation of the positions the Law School has taken with respect to bar exam plans. We will update this page with any additional letters.
