After a year of online-only learning, the Mitchell Hamline School of Law is planning some on-campus instruction in the summer, with hopes high that more will follow in the fall.
That was the message in a March 17 email to students from Lynn LeMoine, dean of students, and Jim Hilbert, vice dean for academic and faculty affairs at the school. It was posted publicly on March 19.
A small number of summer courses will contain a mix of on-campus and remote (”HyFlex”) courses, while some others will be taught entirely in person. Registration was tentatively scheduled to begin on March 29.
“Of course, the summer plan is contingent on continued improvement in containing the transmission of COVID,” the email says.
The email says also that the school plans to expand its on-campus offerings in the fall.
“Given current vaccination rates,” the email says, “we are preparing to offer as many on-campus options as possible. We will also continue to have some remote classes available this fall, too, and provide as many choices for you as we can.”
As fall registration approaches, LeMoine and Hilbert told law students, the school will hold Zoom forums to share more information about what is being planned.
“We are getting much closer to being able to get together again,” the message says.
