Law and the Coronavirus

Aug. 1, 2020

It's been a chaotic few months since the world shut down due to the coronavirus pandemic. Since then, many of us have been working remotely. There have been state stay-at-home orders, mask mandates, social distancing guidelines, and more.

UToledo COVID-19 Response

The college is following University guidelines for reopening this fall. Our college plans may change depending on the course of the virus. Visit the UToledo website for the latest information on the University's response to the coronavirus.

COVID-19 Legal Issues Forum

Starting in April 2020, the college launched the virtual COVID-19 Legal Issues Forum series to discuss how the public health crisis is impacting specific practice areas. To date, sessions have covered topics like business, health care, courts, public service, entertainment, and sports law. New topics will continue to be added. Recordings are available to watch on-demand.
