Taft Law School, an educational division of The Taft University System, was formed to offer unique and innovative distance learning educational programs in law at a reasonable cost to qualified applicants, with a particular focus on those who are mature adults, employed on a full-time basis, or for whom place of residence, travel requirements, or finances are constraining factors. The School has been fulfilling this mission since 1984.

Dear Students, Faculty, and Staff:


We are all very aware of the public health challenge posed by coronavirus (COVID-19) and its effects on the lives of everyone. We are in a rapidly changing environment, with new developments emerging constantly.


I am writing to let you know that, as we all adjust to this situation, Taft Law School remains open for business. The Learning Platform remains accessible 24/7. The Law School administrators and faculty have remote access and will all be working sometimes from home and sometimes in the office, pursuant to the health official’s orders. Taft Law School anticipated that this may occur and we are operational and well-positioned to continue to run the Law School. However we have never done this before. Please be patient. We are doing the best we can under these difficult circumstances that everyone is facing.


Since some of us are working from home, the best form of communication will be email.


Our top priority is the health and safety of our staff, students and their family members as well as our extended community. We will try to keep everyone updated as we receive news as to when we may return to the office.


Our wish for you at this time, above all, is for your health and safety. And, during this period of change, please let us know if there is any way that Taft Law School can be of assistance to you.


Melody Jolly
Dean, Taft Law School
