Yale Law School COVID-19 Information
Fall semester classes ended on November 20, 2020. The exam period runs between Dec. 7-Dec. 18. Below is a list of important quick links and information on testing and building access. The Law School administration continues to work in close partnership with the University and will be monitoring public health conditions over the winter break. It is critical that you regularly check back to this page and the Yale COVID-19 website for further updates.
Students will have access to both the Sterling Law Building and Baker Hall through the exam period until Dec. 18, 2020 with normal hours Monday-Friday 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Students will not have access to either building from Dec. 19, 2020 to Jan. 19, 2021 due to winter break. Baker Hall residents will have access to the residential areas of the building only during that time.
Faculty and staff wishing to come into the buildings during this time should email Associate Dean Mike Thompson and Senior Associate Dean Joe Crosby.
Health, Testing, and Travel
Yale’s Campus COVID Resource Line (CCRL, 203-432-6604) is available 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. ET, 7 days a week.
The University strongly encourages graduate and professional school students, faculty, and staff who are coming to campus to take advantage of the weekly testing program available. This program allows any student, faculty, or staff member who is on campus to receive a free test up to once a week. Please schedule a COVID test here.
If you are traveling out of town, you will need to follow Yale’s protocols for quarantining and testing upon your return.
You may report a concern about compliance with COVID-19 health and safety policies or regulations to me as the Health and Safety Leader. You may also make an anonymous or identified report through Yale’s hotline at 877-360-9253, or online at Yale University Hotline. The hotline is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Staff can also report to their staff supervisor or HR.
Maintaining an Inclusive Environment
Yale University is committed to maintaining an environment of respect and freedom from discrimination and to supporting all members of our community affected by this global health threat. Bias, discrimination, and harassment are inimical to our values and violate Yale policies.
