Specific context for the academic year 2021-2022
The Common Law Section expects to offer a mix of in-person, bimodal, and online courses starting in September 2021. Due to ongoing pandemic restrictions, only 30-50% of courses will be offered in-person in the 2021-2022 academic year. Overall building capacity and classroom space will be limited to adhere to public health recommendations for physical distancing. That means that most students will only be able to register for one in-person course per term and will have to complete the rest of their courses online. The availability of in-person learning may increase over the course of the summer and the academic year if the pandemic subsides. We will continue to follow the direction of the University of Ottawa and public health authorities when it comes to in-person capacity of our classrooms, physical distancing guidelines, and masking directives.
For 2021-2022, students will have the option of enrolling for online learning exclusively.
In order to identify the instruction mode (virtual or in-person) of a course please consult the Course Search Engine. You can also use the filter Instruction mode to see a list of available virtual or in-person courses.
