All class time for all courses will be held remotely through Zoom, an on-line remote platform. Course participants are required to have a device with a working microphone, camera, and internet connection to be able to fully engage and participate in all aspects of the virtual classroom lectures, discussions and exercises. Attendance will be taken and attendance in all class hours is required to receive academic credit (or CLE, if applicable). Please reach out to Health Law and Policy Summer Institute Director Asha Scielzo with any questions.
The registration process differs depending on whether you are taking the course(s) for a general Certificate of Attendance, continuing legal education (CLE) credit (pending), or academic credit.
