NATIONAL JURIST — On-campus learning may have returned, but some of the online technology that schools relied on during the darkest days of the pandemic are not being shelved. The ABA has given variances to a handful of schools to offer hybrid J.D. programs, which allow most courses to be held online. However, there are some on-campus requirements. “COVID-19 has accelerated the move online,” said Nina Kohn, faculty director of online education at Syracuse University College of Law, which has a hybrid program called JDinteractive. “COVID-19 has shown us that there are many ways to deliver legal education. It does not have to be one size fits all.” AccessLex Institute and Gallup did a poll to help evaluate student experience with remote learning. Overall, students did not give it outstanding grades. But first-year students, who had yet to experience campus life, gave it good marks. Many even said they felt a strong connection with their fellow students, despite the fact that they were learning remotely.
