COVID-19 Safety Measures for In-Person Forums
Last updated October 8, 2021
With your health and safety being of the utmost importance, the LSAC Law School Forums have been designed with COVID-19 safety protocols in mind. At the present time, LSAC plans to implement the safety guidelines listed below at the 2021-22 LSAC Law School Forums.
However, please note that LSAC is continually reviewing health and safety guidelines as they relate to public health recommendations. These protocols will evolve along with current conditions and guidance from the CDC and other state and local health agencies. Please check this page regularly for updates.
In addition, please be aware that LSAC may cancel any/all in-person LSAC Law School Forums if LSAC determines that cancellation is warranted due to any safety concerns.
Please note: By attending an LSAC Law School Forum, you agree to abide by all applicable health and safety-related protocols. People who don’t comply with the guidelines will be asked to leave.
In order to reduce the number of people in close proximity, LSAC is limiting the number of people that can be in the forum hall at any given time. To accomplish this, in-person forum attendees will be asked to choose from one of four time slot options during the registration process. You’ll be able to visit with law school representatives during the time frame you select. These varied entry times will provide for a smooth and safe experience for attendees as we strive to comply with social distancing protocols in the forum’s physical space.
Entry-time options include 9 a.m. to 10:45 a.m., 11 a.m. to 12:45 p.m., 2 p.m. to 3:45 p.m., and 4 p.m. to 6 p.m.
You may arrive at the forum venue 90 minutes prior to the start of your time slot, but you may not visit with law schools until your assigned entry time begins. An educational workshop will be available one hour prior to each entry start time. Your opportunity to visit with law schools will conclude at the end of your time slot.
If you’d like to bring a guest, please choose the final time slot of the day.
Vaccinations/Negative Testing Verification
In order to comply with state and local guidelines, vaccination requirements for the remaining 2021-22 LSAC Law School Forums vary by city. More information for each in-person forum is available below.
To keep everyone as safe as possible, we are implementing an important precaution that is consistent with current San Francisco County requirements for indoor events: All in-person forum participants will be required to provide proof of full COVID-19 vaccination. A negative COVID test is not sufficient to enter the event.
All in-person forum participants will be required to provide proof of full COVID-19 vaccination or show a negative COVID test taken within 72 hours of entering the event. Vaccines.gov offers more information if you’re interested in learning about the COVID-19 vaccine or how to schedule your vaccination. This CDC page outlines what is meant by “fully vaccinated.”
LSAC is working with CrowdPass to verify attendee documentation prior to each in-person forum and will soon send a link to the CrowdPass verification site to those who are scheduled to attend in person. LSAC will also accept government-issued health passes, such as the New York State Excelsior pass and California’s digital vaccination card, which bears a QR code so it can be authenticated.
To align with New York’s requirement, all in-person forum participants will be required to provide proof of at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccination administered at least one day prior to the forum. For participants who are not considered “fully vaccinated” according to the CDC, a negative COVID test taken within 72 hours of entering the event will be required in conjunction with proof of one vaccine dose. Vaccines.gov offers more information if you’re interested in learning about the COVID-19 vaccine or how to schedule your vaccination.
Fully vaccinated participants should use CrowdPass to verify attendee documentation prior to the New York Forum. Those who are not considered fully vaccinated will need to bring documentation to the forum for review. LSAC will also accept government-issued health passes, such as the New York State Excelsior pass and California’s digital vaccination card, which bears a QR code so it can be authenticated.
LSAC must comply with Los Angeles County’s ordinance for indoor events, which states that attendees must show proof of vaccination along with personal identification before entering the forum hall. The following forms of identification are acceptable: driver’s license, passport, school/work ID, and government-issued ID. Vaccines.gov offers more information if you’re interested in learning about the COVID-19 vaccine or how to schedule your vaccination, while this CDC page outlines what is meant by “fully vaccinated.”
At this time, we are not verifying vaccination status in advance of the event. We will provide an update as more information becomes available.
To accommodate our event attendees and their personal positions on vaccinations, all Los Angeles forum registrants will receive access to the Digital Law School Forum platform starting Monday, November 15. By clicking the On-Demand Workshops and Resources link in your LSAC online account, you’ll be able to view workshops covering topics such as financing a legal education in the U.S. and the LSAT, and access downloadable resources provided by law schools and LSAC. You’ll also be able to meet with law school representatives virtually on live Digital Forum days, coming up on December 4 and February 5. Learn more about the Digital Law School Forums.
Attendees are encouraged to maintain safe distances from law school representatives and one another. LSAC will facilitate social distancing by using modified room layouts, crowd flow management, and physical barriers where appropriate. Presenters will sit at tables that are six feet long, helping to enforce distancing. Floors in front of exhibit tables will be marked with stickers six feet apart, also enforcing social distancing. Additionally, safety reminders, including signage and floor decals, will be posted to reinforce social distancing. The number of people in the exhibit halls will always be far below the room’s capacity.
Everyone attending an in-person forum must wear, for the entirety of their time inside the venue, a face mask that covers the nose and mouth. Although we will have disposable masks on site, we encourage attendees to be prepared.
