MyLaw will host 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. MyLaw will allow you to manage the communications you receive by department, organization and topic, both on your portal home page and through email. Your MyLaw home page also will be automatically populated with links to your course pages each term.
