Law School Coronavirus Updates

Message from Dean Matthew Diller


April 16, 2021

Fordham University has announced that it will require all students to be vaccinated by the opening of the fall semester 2021 (medical and religious accommodations will be considered).  For international students who cannot be vaccinated in their home countries, the University will offer on-campus vaccinations upon arrival.  Further, it is the University’s strong expectation that all faculty, staff, and administrators will be fully vaccinated before the beginning of the fall semester. The goal of these policies is to provide a COVID-safe environment for the University community and help protect the health and safety of our off-campus neighbors.

As I shared in March 2021, we hope to offer a robust slate of in-person classes and activities in fall 2021, and we are working to that end.  We will finalize our plans when we have further health guidance from New York State and City.  I appreciate your patience as we continue our commitment to academic excellence and public health.

Updates will be posted here when available.
