Queen’s Law has adopted a hybrid model for the 2020-21 academic year. All large upper-year lecture classes are online. Many 1L classes and a select number of upper-year seminars and clinical courses meet partly in-person and partly remote. This model provides students, especially 1Ls, some opportunity for in-person classes. All students have the option to take classes fully remotely.
Many faculty members report that students seem to participate more in online classes than they did in in-person classes. This may be an important area for study going forward by scholars interested in questions of differential class participation across student populations.
