COVID-19 Advisory Statement

To our members and prospective members: 

As the number of cases of COVID-19 continues to grow worldwide, we urge our members and prospective members to follow the recommendations and guidelines of their local and federal public health agencies and to adhere strictly to university and law school policies applicable to student organizations and public events.  As suggested by empirical data to date, the restriction of public gatherings seems to be having a positive effect on containment efforts.

Council and Headquarters emphasize that while we believe that participation in our eloquent and historic initiation ritual is perhaps one of the most meaningful experiences that a prelaw or law student will enjoy, we understand that in these difficult times, personal interaction may not be advisable and may contravene school policy and/or recommendations of public health authorities.  Accordingly, Council and Headquarters urge Halls and Inns to conduct “virtual” initiation ceremonies online where possible until the threat of COVID-19 has passed.  

Should you have questions regarding how to set up a virtual initiation ceremony for your Hall or Inn, or should you have any other questions regarding membership, please do not hesitate to contact our Director of Membership, Tyler Kocak, J.D., or our Executive Director, Tim Wheat, Headquarters.  We are happy to answer any questions you may have and we wish you a safe, healthy and successful spring semester!
