BC Law Adapts in Face of Pandemic

Campus closes, classes go online, as Law School finds ways to complete school year.


In response to the coronavirus and with the health and well-being of the entire BC Law community as its top priority, Boston College Law School has followed University directives to close campus, cancel events—(including University Advancement alumni gatherings until at least the end of April), and migrate faculty and students to online teaching and learning.

During this difficult time, BC Law Magazine will focus on the impact of the coronavirus with periodical updates, news, and stories that provide perspective on what the pandemic means both to our community and to the world beyond. From time to time, we may also bring you articles that offer a respite from the pandemic drumbeat.

For students, there is so much to reassess pertaining to their futures, everything from job interviews and job security to bar exam preparation to clinical program requirements to raising funds for summer stipends. Faculty face disruptions in their classroom and scholarly pursuits be they symposia, workshops, or publications.

As for alumni, there is no doubt upheaval on every conceivable personal and professional front but also a wealth of experience and legal expertise that they may ultimately bring to the rescue of a world reeling from the Covid-19 pandemic. BC Law Magazine will be  there to tell those stories too.
