3.1 LAW SCHOOL BRIEFS

Students are encouraged to regularly review The Law School Briefs, a bulletin of activities and announcements for the Law School community, published and emailed to the Law School community every Monday by the Law School Office of Communications.

3.2 LAW SCHOOL POSTING POLICY

The Law School permits Law School and University of Chicago organizations, schools, divisions, departments, and members of the Law School or University of Chicago community to post documents, fliers, signs, or posters in designated areas in the Law School.  All postings must be dated and only one posting per location/bulletin board is permitted.  Anonymous postings are strictly prohibited in the Law School, and all postings must include the name of a current University of Chicago-affiliated contact (whether an organization, a school, a division, a department, or an individual) and an active uchicago.edu email address. 

Postings are only permitted in designated areas in the Law School.  Those designated areas are limited to (1) the free-standing boards for fliers for “today’s events” only; (2) the bulletin board located above the mail folders; (3) the holders outside classroom doors; (4) the designated student organization bulletin boards; (5) the kiosk boards on the lower level; and (6) the bulletin board space inside classrooms I-IV right inside the north door to each of those rooms. No signs, fliers, or posters are permitted on any other surfaces within the building ― wood, glass, columns in the Green Lounge, classroom walls, tables, desks, counters, etc. Signs, documents, fliers, or posters placed in unauthorized places or posted in violation of this policy will be removed and a cleanup fee of $50 will be charged to any individual or organization that fails to adhere to these guidelines. 

Anyone posting in the Law School must remove the posting within seven days of the date listed on the posting or, if the posting relates to a specific event, within seven days of the conclusion of the advertised event.  On a periodic basis, Law School staff will remove all postings inconsistent with the Law School’s posting policy.  To report violations of the Law School posting policy, please email lawpostingpolicy@lists.uchicago.edu

As with all violations of Law School and University policy, please note that violations of the Law School posting policy may in some instances lead to fines or disciplinary action.          

3.3 EMAIL

All Law School students are required to check email each business day during the academic year. Most administrative announcements will be sent via email, and students are responsible for the information. Students who have a personal email account they prefer to use must link their UChicago account to it, as all announcements will be sent to the UChicago address. Please refer to the Policy of Information Technology Resources online at https://itservices.uchicago.edu/page/it-policies for a description of the responsibilities of users of the University’s computer system.  Students who decide to link their personal email account to their UChicago account should keep in mind that they must still log into their UChicago account periodically to delete messages.  IT Services will turn off email accounts that go over capacity, creating a risk of missing important Law School announcements.  

3.4 MAIL

Campus Mail/Student Mail Folders

Student mail folders are located in the south end of the classroom wing. Folders are color coded to reflect class year. The class year is also noted on the identification tab. Students should check these folders daily for important notices. LL.M.s - Yellow, Class of 2019 – Green, Class of 2020 – Blue, and Class of 2021 – Red. Mail folders should not be used for storage, receiving book sales payments, etc., and students are advised to remember that mail folders are not secure.
