Community Guidelines in Response to the COVID-19 Pandemic

This site is to provide our South Texas community with updated information regarding our law school’s operations in response to the coronavirus situation.

From the beginning, we have used the following three principles to guide all of our decision-making:

  1. Provide for the health and safety of our South Texas community and their loved ones.
  2. Maintain excellence in our educational mission.
  3. Preserve and foster the unique community that makes South Texas special.

Although many in our community will physically return to campus in the fall, the coronavirus situation has prevented us from assuming our former sense of normalcy in our operations. We must all work collectively together to protect the safety and health of those within our community, and we appreciate your patience and flexibility as we navigate a successful fall semester for everyone.

Thank you for your role in keeping our community safe and healthy.
