MyLaw provides “one-stop-shopping” for all of the school’s internal web-related needs. In addition to serving as a course management system, the MyLaw portal includes: targeted communications (to specific groups like 1Ls, 2Ls, 3Ls, LLMs, etc.); online instructor office hour reservations; library conference room reservations; take-home exams/online paper turn in utility and more. MyLaw hosts content from Law School departments, which can be targeted to specific student groups, so that you will see only the information that is relevant to you. Your MyLaw home page is also automatically populated with links to your course pages each term.
Your MyLaw home page provides easy access to your current course pages.
It also has a customizable "My Links" section where you can add your own frequently used links.
MyLaw course pages have the following features:
The My Reminders part lists events you RSVP'd to, instructor office hours and Library Conference Room Reservations. These can be easilty exported to your personal calendar.
You can sign up for office hours online with Instructors who choose to use this feature.
Library Conference Room Reservations may be made through the Appointments & Reservations section in MyLaw.
Targeted content means that you only see links to information that applies to you as a student, making internal content appear more streamlined.
