Student Notebook Computer Use

All entering students should review the important information concerning the required specifications for notebook computers to ensure the compatibility of their computer with the Law School's systems and their eligibility for computer assistance at the Help Desk.

The Law School has implemented a wireless network that accommodates hundreds of simultaneous law student notebook users. Important information about wireless network configuration is available in the Student Computing Guide [pdf].

Law students using notebook computers connected to the wireless networks may send print jobs ($0.07 /page) to the Pharos print management system that serves the main computer areas. More information on configuration is available in the Student Computing Guide [pdf].

Law students in most courses have the option to take their exams using their own notebook computer. The Law School uses Exam4 from Extegrity, which is made available by the Law School just prior to exam periods in versions for Windows computers as well as Macs.

Viewing course-related videos on the Law School's portal requires Microsoft's Internet Explorer browser and Microsoft's Silverlight player or Windows Media Player and currently is not compatible with Macs.
