RTC - Spring Semester

Spring Term 2022 Information

Harvard Law School’s Spring Term 2022 will be conducted in person. Accordingly, it is especially important that every member of the HLS community review, understand, and closely follow the University’s updated COVID-19 protocols and expectations. As Harvard University Health Services Executive Director Giang Nguyen’s recent message indicated, these include (but are not limited to):

  • Vaccination and new booster requirements, which must be verified by January 31 or within 30 days of eligibility.
  • Masking effectively through the use of EITHER a KN-95 cup-style mask OR a surgical mask layered under a form-fitting fabric mask to minimize air gaps around the edges.
  • Pre- and post-arrival testing protocols, information on which can be found in the University’s updated testing protocols page.
  • Reporting COVID-19 symptoms or a positive non-Harvard COVID-19 test.

In the days ahead, we will share additional information about efforts we will all be taking to safeguard the community as we return to campus and work to ensure a successful Spring Term. In the meantime, we thank all of you for the flexibility, patience, diligence, hard work, and generosity you’ve shown as we continue to work together to advance our Law School’s vital mission while providing for the health and safety of our community.
