Coronavirus (Covid-19)

The University has a dedicated website with the latest information for prospective and current students, staff and visitors to the University about Covid-19. It is regularly updated and we would urge anyone who may be concerned about their studies, work or visit with the Law School to check this site first for the latest information.

Law School closure

Due to the exceptional circumstances surrounding the outbreak of Covid-19, the Law School has moved all of its teaching and assessment online. This is in line with current advice from the UK and Scottish Governments.

During this time, teaching will continue to be conducted remotely online. Students should consult course pages on LEARN for information about how to participate.

Old College and the Law Annex at Holyrood Road are currently closed entirely, meaning that no access to the buildings is possible.

The Law Library is closed. The library’s electronic resources remain available, and efforts are underway to expand these as quickly as possible. All other libraries across the University are now also closed. The latest information relating to the libraries during this time will be updated on the libraries website.

Most Law School staff are still working remotely and are contactable via their usual email addresses.

We will continue to keep in touch with our current and prospective students, and staff during this challenging period. We look forward to welcoming everyone back to the Law School in due course.

For the latest information and updates about the ongoing Covid-19 situation can be found on the University of Edinburgh’s Covid-19 website.
