Welcome!

Welcome!

Whether this is your first time being here in-person, or you’re coming back, we are delighted to welcome the Harvard Law School community to campus! As we work with the University to plan for the phased re-opening of on-campus activities, we’ll be guided by the health and safety of our students, faculty, and staff, as well as our continuing mission of teaching, learning, research, and service.

We have compiled this guide to current return-to-campus resources and information. As the public health situation and related guidance continues to evolve in the days and weeks ahead, and more is known about the fall semester, we will regularly update this and other pages, so please check back often. In the meantime, we look forward to seeing you!

Harvard Law School looks forward to the return of our on-campus activities. As always, the health and safety of our students, faculty, and staff, as well as our continuing mission of teaching, learning, research, and service, remain paramount. With those objectives in mind, and in accordance with Harvard University guidelines, HLS has adopted the following public health policies related to our on-campus operations.

How to Verify Your Vaccination

How to Verify Your Vaccination


Thank you to every member of our community who has already verified their COVID vaccination by submitting it to Harvard University Health Services (HUHS). The University is requiring COVID vaccination for all community members who will have any on-campus presences this fall. If you haven’t submitted your verification yet, please visit the Verify Your Vaccination webpage and follow the instructions. If you received your vaccine through HUHS, you do not need to submit any information, as HUHS already has your information on file. HUHS keeps individual medical information secure and confidential.

Keep HLS Healthy

Wear a face covering and wear it correctly

At the current time, the University will continue to require masks indoors, regardless of vaccination status, until the level of COVID vaccination across our community can be determined. With confirmation of high vaccination levels, Harvard officials have said they expect to issue revised indoor mask-wearing policies. Meanwhile, all community members should carry a mask on campus in the event it becomes necessary to wear it.

Wash Your Hands Often

Use soap and water with 20 seconds of rubbing, or use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer. Do this before and after touching anything that needs to be touched by other people, and before eating, drinking, or touching your face or face covering.
