Winter Intersession and Spring 2021 Class Schedule

All classes will be offered remotely in spring 2021.
We anticipate the spring semester will look much like fall 2020, with courses being offered in-person and ALL courses also being offered virtually under extended ABA permission.
Students will still be able to live out of state in the spring.

Students enrolled in more than 12 credit hours may not work more than 20 hours per week. ABA Standard 304(f).

Go to File | Page Setup...; change the left and right margins to .33 or less. Reset your margins after printing.

NOTE: No student shall enroll in distance education courses until that student has completed instruction in a minimum of 28 credit hours toward the J.D. degree. No student may use more than 30 credit hours of distance education coursework towards satisfaction of the J.D. degree requirements.

You may enroll in courses that would require two exams on the same day, but you MUST take both exams on that day.

Rising Second Year Law Students:
See list of 2021-2022 Potential Online Courses for Third Year Anywhere™ enrollment option participants.

On the schedule below:

  • * Classes noted as "Zoom" will not meet in-person and instead will be delivered exclusively via a synchronous Zoom platform. Classrooms are assigned so that some students can have a space in the building to participate in that remote class. Students are not required to attend class from the assigned room and may participate from any appropriate location.
  • Room Wash A/B is located in the Washburn University Memorial Student Union.
  • Room 214I is located in the Washburn University School of Law Library Computer Lab (straight ahead past the reference desk after entering the library).
