Spring Semester 2021
With the safety and health of the entire FAMU Law community in mind, the College of Law will extend remote instruction for all classes into the first two weeks of the spring 2021 semester.
Spring semester classes will begin on Monday, January 4. However, all College of Law classes will be taught remotely through Friday, January 15. Accordingly, during the first two weeks of the semester, instruction in all class formats — hyflex, in-person, or remote — will be virtual.
The College of Law will be closed on Monday, January 18 in observance of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, and classes will not meet. Beginning on Tuesday, January 19, face-to-face instruction will begin in hyflex classes with in-person seating. Face-to-face instruction in those classes will take place from Tuesday, January 19 through Friday, March 12.
The College of Law will have Spring Break the week of March 15. Following Spring Break, all instruction will be virtual from March 22 through April 12. Spring classes end on Monday, April 12.
The spring 2021 plan was recommended by the College of Law’s Pandemic Planning Task Force and accepted by Dean Keller in November 2020. The University Administration subsequently approved the plan for the College of Law. Read President Robinson’s official statement regarding plans for Spring 2021 here.
