Revised course and exam schedule information for Fall 2020

  • 17 July 2020

 Dear Students,


There have been several changes to the Fall 2020 class schedule, with adjustments to class meeting times and room assignments.  Please note that we are still working on collecting information for those students who plan to participate remotely, and are working out the details for classroom capacity based upon the information we have received from the health and safety experts.   It is possible that changes to room assignments or course capacity could be made prior to the start of the fall semester.  


An updated copy of the Fall 2020 Registration Materials including the schedule of course offerings (Section IV) has been posted on the Academic Services page of the TLS Intranet along with the schedule grid.  All changes that have been made since the initial distribution of these materials are indicated in red.   If the course is planned to be offered completely online, it will be listed as such in the listing of courses.   Please note that portions of some classes that are being taught in person may be offered remotely.  The class schedule information for all courses offered at Tulane, including the law courses, is also available online at
