Coronavirus (COVID-19)

The University of New Hampshire is a residential university system committed to face-to-face learning, and the law school shares this commitment for both its Residential Programs and the residential portions of the Hybrid Program. As of this writing, all residential classes and Hybrid Immersion sessions will be held in person, and we welcome students, faculty, and staff to our COVID-19-ready Concord campus.
