Page 34 of 43 33 in Kingston, Ont. It has decided to make in-person teaching available whenever possible, especially for those students in the first year. Assistant dean Phillip Drew says that, while a remote option or a hybrid teaching model is also available to students, about 87 per cent of first-year students are taking classes in person. The school is taking the pandemic seriously, she says, and making sure that health precautions are being followed to the letter, with smaller classes spread out in large auditoriums across the Queen's campus. But it was important to help first-year students' transition to law school and the rigours of a professional program. "It was our belief that, if we can have the students here, we can provide them the support that they need to make that transi- tion a good one, keeping in mind that we are restricted in what we can do," he says. However, all law schools are concerned about students and instructors' mental state as the pandemic goes on. As McGill's Leckey puts it: "In the grand scheme of things, the whole pandemic situation is weighing heavily on people, and we're all feeling the stress of not going to a restaurant or café, and you are not supposed to socialize in person with someone who doesn't live under your roof." There's also the stress from job loss in the family and concerns about loved ones catching the virus and becoming seriously ill, he says. "We're taking particular pains to listen to students and faculty and make sure that there are feedback channels to help if possible. But it's a challenging time for all." "It's heartbreaking that I could pass by one of my students on the street and wouldn't know it."
