Jennifer D. OlivaSeton Hall Law Professor Jennifer D. Oliva designed and will teach a new course, COVID-19: Current Topics in Pandemic Law and Policy, believed to be the first of its kind in the nation, this summer. “The spread of the novel coronavirus has created legal and policy challenges that are largely unprecedented in the United States—many of which will likely play out in American courts and legislatures for years to come,” said Professor Oliva. “This course will examine the biomedical and epidemiological evidence regarding SARS-CoV-2 against the backdrop of the myriad law and policy issues implicated by the pandemic. As such, the course will require students to evaluate the SARS-CoV-2 public health emergency from a constitutional, criminal, administrative, health, employment, privacy, and civil rights law and policy perspective.” Read full Press Release (5/6/20) here.
