Arizona Law "New Safe Return" Plan: 7.0 NON-CURRICULAR PROGRAMS

Guidelines for the College of Law's new safe return to campus


Law school publications contribute to legal scholarship and explore new areas of research in the theory and practice of law. Student editorial boards work under the direction of student and faculty leadership to publish regular volumes, which can include student notes or articles by scholars and jurists nationwide.

Student organizations play an integral role in supporting the academic, administrative, social, and community engagement functions of Arizona Law. These functions include a wide range of activities including but not limited to: participation on Arizona Law committees, pro bono work, pipeline efforts, veterans affairs, distribution of food to ameliorate food insecurity, moot court competitions, access to justice, and restoration of civil liberties.

This Plan establishes the following rules for student organizations, including journals and law reviews, at Arizona Law:

  1. According to the UArizona Physical Distancing guidelines (7/21/2020) and CDC recommendations, people should avoid gatherings of more than 10 people. This rule applies to student gatherings regardless of where they are held. 
  2. All student organization gatherings and activities, whether held at the Law School, elsewhere at the University, or off-campus, shall conform to the safety protocols outlined in this Plan.
  3. Until the Arizona Law COVID Task Force determines otherwise, at the beginning of every semester each student organization and law journal shall develop an internal plan to carry out its operations and activities in conformity with this Plan.

Planning for the Fall 2020 first-year orientation is ongoing and shall conform with all applicable University guidance and, insofar as practical, the safety protocols outlined in this Plan. First-year orientation will be held completely online with a mix of live events and asynchronous modules. Arizona Law is also planning re-entry presentations for returning students to ensure they are familiar with our new protocols.
