Give Feedback About This Site

Thanks for visiting the Law School's new and improved website, which was launched June 18, 2009.

Maintaining a website as large as this -- let alone moving it from one software platform to another -- is a massive undertaking, and we couldn't do it without your help. We expect that over next few weeks we will discover broken links, missing files, and other unforeseen consequences of our software and hardware migration. It will take some time to smooth all the rough edges -- if you discover a problem, please let us know, and we'll try to get it fixed as soon as possible!

You can leave comments below... and thanks for your help!

Note: Users of Internet Explorer 6 may experience some problems with the display of menus. We're working on fixing this.

News story for front page

I really think the Police Accountability Project's recent win deserves a spot on the home page - http://www.suntimes.com/26134385-761/police-misconduct-files-must-be-made-public-court-rules.html

Also, are you aware that I can see the comments & responses to other people's submissions using this form?

thanks

We're working on a news story about that win as I type. And yes, comments on this page are public by design.

Downloading?

For busy alumni (most of us?), would it be possible to make things like the conversation between Prof. Stone and Justice Ginsburg downloadable so that we can enjoy the audio portion via playing the video on our smart phones or MP3/iPod players as we drive, run, etc.?

Absolutely!

We'll be adding downloadable audio of the Stone/Ginsburg discussion in the near future, but in the meantime be sure to browse through the hundreds of audio files we already have available at http://www.law.uchicago.edu/audio, and be sure to subscribe to the Faculty Podcast (http://www.law.uchicago.edu/publications/podcasts/faculty) so you don't miss anything.

Info That Should Be Posted

Does the law school have a main fax number?  I am trying to send a fax to a faculty member.  Thank you.

Unfortunately there is not a

Unfortunately there is not a main fax number, but depending on who the faculty member is you may be able to reach them at 773-702-0730.

Video Archives of Old Lectures

Is there any way we can host video archives of lectures delivered by professors who have since left the law school?  I know we regularly tape sessions for evaluation, so it would be nice to get to experience instruction from those who have moved on but contributed so much to the school.

videos

If you mean class lectures, I don't believe we normally record those except at the request of faculty members themselves (a quite rare occurrence). However, if you browse through our video archive (http://www.law.uchicago.edu/video) you will find quite a few CBIs and other types of lectures from faculty members who have since moved on from the Law School.

Chalk website link broken for students

The link for students for Chalk is going to http://www.law.uchicago.edu/chalk which goes to chalk9.uchicago.edu -- it needs to go to chalk.uchicago.edu or it won't work.

thanks for the heads-up

We've made the change.

How come when you click on

How come when you click on "Faculty & Staff" it doesn't take you to a directory of the faculty? I just see the picture of one faculty member?

Faculty & Staff

You'll notice that "Faculty & Staff" is located in a menu labeled "Information For:". If you click on the link in the second row called "The Faculty" you'll find the directory of faculty. Hope that helps!

can't stay in standard site

The mobile is not designed to help current students. It is a gimmicky site aimed at prospective students and alumni. What makes this more frustrating is when you try to go to the standard site, everytime you click a link it takes you back to the mobile site which has none of the information you need. I don't mind the attempt at a mobile site but the glitch where you cannot stay on the standard site needs to be fixed.

Thanks for the feedback

You're right, that is a bug. I will see what I can do to rectify it.

If there are particular things that you would like to see on the mobile site, please do let us know - it's a work in progress and we hope to make it as useful as possible for all of our audiences.

bug fixed

You will need to have cookies enabled on your phone so that the site will remember that you would like to see the standard site instead of the mobile site.

Ariel Porat's office number

I think he's in 607, not 625. 625 is G Stone's office. Thanks. 

thanks

Prof. Porat's office number has been updated.

Admitted students page

There is a missing word in the first line of the Admitted Students page. OUCH!!!

Thanks,

Re: posting of letters

We're looking into the best way to do this -- stay tuned!

CLF website and other info

Hello,

The website for the Chicago Law Foundation (CLF) is chicagolawfoundation.org.  The law school website doesn't mention this anywhere.  Could we at least fix this in the student organizations section and in the events section?  That would be very useful.

Also, this year's public interest auction is on January 14, 2010 and this year's President of the CLF is Roger Sharpe at rsharpe@uchicago.edu.  There is contrary information in the events section.

Thank you very much.

The website URL has been

The website URL has been added to the CLF organization page. I'm unable to find the contrary information you mention, however -- can you provide a URL? Thanks.

the website is disappointing

I am an alumna (2008). The website was 1000x better when I was a student here.  The front page was simple, easy to navigate, and did not overload the viewer with stimuli.  It focused the viewer on an interesting quip by one of our many distinguished professors and had a pleasing picture.  Now when I come to the law school's website, it takes too much time to figure out what to look at or where to go for the information I seek, none of the information seems more important than the rest, and I'm annoyed and confused.  In sum, this website reconfiguration makes using the website less efficient and less aesthetically pleasing.  Anything would be better than this, including the old website (circa 2005).

Sorry that you're not having

Sorry that you're not having a good experience with the new website. We hope that after living with it for a while, it will start to grow on you; in the meantime, is there something we can help you find? As an alumna, we hope that the link on the top menu ("Information for... Alumni") will provide you much of the information you're seeking. If not, please let us know!
