Harvard Law School late Wednesday announced that fall classes will be fully online in light of the COVID-19 pandemic—making it the first top law school to confirm that it won’t be returning to campus next semester.

“This is not the announcement we’d hoped to make,” wrote dean John Manning in a message to students. “But our first priority is, and must continue to be, the health and safety of our community, and we cannot reliably conclude at this time that we can safely provide an effective on-campus program this fall.”
