Law School Resources
Recordings for Observance of Religious Holidays: The Law School policy allows students to request class recordings when you must miss class due to observance of religious holidays, including up to 1 day prior to and following the holiday if travel is required. Students wishing to request that a class be recorded due to observance of religious holidays must submit their petition at least 7 days in advance of the absence here: http://www.law.uchicago.edu/RequestRecordClassHolidayObservance. Students should not contact a professor directly about recording; all recording requests are handled through the Registrar's Office. Questions about recording requests should be directed to email@example.com or the Office of the Dean of Students at firstname.lastname@example.org. Students are prohibited from recording classes on their own.
Law School Prayer Space: For Autumn Quarter 2020 our regular prayer space in the Law School will not be available due to its size and our density limits. However, students needing a prayer space within the Law School may use Room G on the lower level. The room will remain unlocked during building hours, 8:00 AM – 4:00 PM and will only be used for this purpose. Students are free to utilize the space as needed for prayer while also maintaining all social distance and mask requirements.
