Last March, like countless others around the globe, Harvard Law School faculty faced a once-in-a-generation moment. With the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic and the closure of the HLS campus, faculty had to forgo daily in-person interactions with students and transition to an online teaching model. In myriad ways —from setting up podiums and lighting in home offices to adjusting their teaching methods to accommodate a balance of lectures and small group discussion — faculty employed innovative approaches to connect with students and deliver a first-class legal education. Here, 10 faculty — Molly Brady, I. Glenn Cohen ’03, Sheila Heen ’93, Richard Lazarus ’79, Leah Plunkett ’06, Intistar Rabb, William Rubenstein ’86, Susannah Barton Tobin ’04, Laura Weinrib ’03, and David Wilkins ’80 — share their experiences.
