Sauder Schelkopf is investigating a class action lawsuit on behalf of students who are attending Brown University. Brown closed campus on March 22, as the result of COVID-19, and transition to online classes on March 30. On April 26, 2020, Brown’s Presiden Christina Paxson wrote in a New York Times Op-Ed “But students will still benefit from all that makes in-person education so valuable: the fierce intellectual debates that just aren’t the same on Zoom, the research opportunities in university laboratories and libraries and the personal interactions among students with different perspectives and life experiences.” Nevertheless, Brown has failed to offer pro-rata tuition refunds. In fact, President Paxson recently told the NYT, “During this time of national crisis, no aspect of our daily lives are what anyone expected,” she wrote. “And none of us expects to be compensated for the various aspects of our lives that we all expected to have — travel, gatherings with families and friends, attending recreational events, and yes, on-campus education.”
