Hofstra Law COVID-19 Update – March 17

Dear Hofstra Law Community,

I want to start by thanking you all for your patience, your understanding, and your willingness to quickly adapt the way we teach, learn, and operate during this uncertain time. Your ability to work together and support one another is what makes Hofstra Law special.

In the best interest of the Hofstra Law community, we have decided to extend remote classes through the end of the semester. The Law School’s academic calendar will remain the same.

Final exams will be administered remotely. We are working with the faculty and IT to determine the best technology and process, and we will have more information on this in the coming weeks.

The University has not yet made a decision regarding Commencement. We are in conversation with them, and our goal is to celebrate this important and joyous event in a way that keeps our community safe.

Until further notice, students and non-essential personnel should avoid the Law School building unless their presence is essential.

The Law School administrative offices are working to make as many of their services as they can available remotely. Administrators remain accessible to meet with you via email, phone or Zoom.

If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to me.

Warmest regards,

Judge Gail Prudenti
