A Message to the St. John’s Law Community

Dear Alumni and Friends of St. John’s Law, 

The public health crisis in which we all find ourselves will test the mettle of every institution. For St. John’s Law, the immediate challenge was to transition quickly to a fully online educational program and to a fully remote work force. We held our last in-person class on Monday, March 9. By Wednesday, March 11, we had moved 140 classes taught by 39 full-time and 85 adjunct faculty members completely online. In just a few more days, the Law School’s Executive Staff made all of our operations—career development, student services, alumni relations, and more—fully remote.  

It was a tremendous display of teamwork, and I am enormously proud that we accomplished this transition so rapidly. I am also enormously grateful to the faculty and staff who have worked so hard to make it happen and
