Creating and Maintaining Information Pages

The Department Information page is the landing/home page of your MyLaw site. You can create a single home page for everyone, or you can create home pages targeted towards different audiences, e.g., students, staff, faculty, all students, non-law students, etc.

Please make sure that each audience has a
Department Information page targeted to it.

Creating Your Department Information page

    NOTE: Copying content directly from Word will cause formatting problems. Be sure to paste your content into a text editor like Notepad or TextEdit first, then copy that text and paste into your content area.
