Legal Instruction, is given to the student or students

New ID Cards for Continuing Students. On July 20,
the Law School introduced a new system for managing computer
lab printing and Library photocopying services. The new
system entails two significant changes:
The new system uses centrally
stored accounts that are linked to your photo ID card.
All students will now have a "cash account"
into which personal funds may be deposited for use with
Library photocopiers or computer lab printers.
Law School students will have
an additional "printing account" which will
be reset to the equivalent of 400 pages of printing at
the start of each semester. The print release stations
in the Law School computer labs will allow you to choose
which account each of your print jobs is charged to.
All students must obtain a new photo ID card in order
to use Library photocopying services and/or Law School
computer lab printing services. If you are a continuing
student, you may pick up your new card in the Registrar's
office. Summer hours for the Registrar's office are: Monday-Thursday
8:30-6:00, Friday 8:30-12:00.
