School of Law COVID-19 Information

COVID-19 Information and Resources for the School of Law

As of March 23 are classes for 1L, 2L and 3L students have been moved online.

While we closely monitor the effects of the COVID-19 outbreak, we want you to know that we are committed to helping ease the transition as much as possible.  There are many resources for you to help with this transition. For general information regarding Creighton’s response to this crisis, please visit the University Page .

As we make the transition of courses to an online format, there are some particular questions you might have:

Legal Clinic

The clinic is continuing to take applications for legal assistance. People seeking assistance should call our general number 402-280-3068. Someone should call them back within 48 hours. 

Help with Online instruction

The TLC has opened a non-credit BlueLine 101 for Students course, which is designed to provide BlueLine and technology information to help students acclimate and become familiar with our LMS. Students can enroll by going to this registration link

Who can students contact if they need help

Feel free to reach out to Dean Josh Fershee JoshuaFershee [at] Creighton [dot] edu, Dean McFayden RichardMcFayden [at] creighton [dot] edu, and Dean Dallon CraigDallon [at] creighton [dot] edu, as well as others in our community if you have questions or need help.

Mental Health Sources Available

We are faced with a lot of uncertainty right now, and our social distancing requirements, while essential, can make us lonely. In normal circumstances, many of us might not choose to interact with others very often, but just having the option can be reassuring, and that lack of the option can be unsettling. It’s not unlike someone telling you not to think of the elephant in the room.  Too late.   

Here are a few things you might want to consider:

  • Call, text, or email friends and family that you haven’t in a while.  It’s good to reconnect, and they may need to hear from someone, too.
  • Try to move, even though it feels like there are not too many places to go – a walk outside or even around your house. 
  • Give yourself a break.  This is hard, and it’s okay if everything isn’t working how you want it to. (This is something I am trying to remind myself, too.)

Financial Assistance Available for Those in Need

The university has created a COVID-19 Emergency Student Assistance Fund, and if you need financial assistance, you can apply here. We may not be able to be here with you, but we are here for you.
