COVID-19 Update:

Graduation 2020

A new graduation ceremony is currently scheduled for August 7, 2020. If any changes or updates are made to this current plan, students will be notified. 

Information Regarding Spring 2020

On Monday, March 23rd, all classes transitioned to online instruction through the end of the Spring 2020 semester. Students were required to participate in their classes remotely. Students enrolled in skills courses (clinics, simulations, externships) were notified of any exceptions by their professors. No classes were held on campus. 

All law school social activities were canceled. Additionally, all university-sponsored international travel and non-essential domestic travel were suspended. 

Building access and Entry

In an effort to better secure facilities and protect property, all buildings are currently in a controlled-access status that will require an MC Law ID card for entry. Faculty and staff will continue to have access to academic buildings, but they will be required to swipe their MC ID card to gain access. 


Mental Health and COVID-19

The ongoing goal of the MC Law administration is to safeguard our MC Law community and allow our students, faculty, and staff to successfully complete the semester. The law school has taken proactive steps to minimize health and welfare risks.  In the coming months, Mississippi College officials will continue to actively monitor the local and global status of the COVID-19 impact.
