Covid-19

Academic Year 2021/22

As with the entire University of Edinburgh, the Law School’s planning for the 2021-22 academic year has been developed on Covid-19 regulations and guidance as outlined by the Scottish Government. We expect all students who have enrolled in an on-campus programme to be with us in Edinburgh for the start of the 2021-22 academic year.

The City of Edinburgh, as with the rest of Scotland, has moved beyond the UK Covid-19 levels system to ‘Beyond zero’.

Despite the removal of many of the Covid-19 safety measures, there are still several restrictions, and health and safety measures in place across the Law School and University to try and prevent the spread of the virus and keep everyone safe.

All students must read the Law School spaces user guide and familiarise themselves with the procedures and regulations in place at the Law School before coming to campus.

You may have received previous communications about the forthcoming year and over the coming weeks you will receive further detailed communications about what studying at the Law School will look like this year, including:

  • Learning and Teaching information
  • Using Law School spaces and Covid-19 safety measures
  • Sourcing support
  • University conduct expectations

Please check your student email, LEARN, and this site regularly for the most up to date information relating to your programme of study.

We would like all students to be aware that the restrictions in place within the University may differ from those of the wider Scottish community, and particularly from those in your home town or country. We ask that you please familiarise yourself as soon as possible with the specific guidance for members of the University student body, and comply with the measures in place at all times.

It is understandable that everyone will feel a different level of comfort with the safety measures in place, and we therefore ask that everyone consider an individual’s preferences for maintaining some restrictions, even if they are not mandatory. As always, please be kind.
