Law Student Printing Guide

Printing Overview

Public Law Student Printing 

As a student, you can print from your personal laptops to public printers at the Law School from the wired or Wi-Fi networks.  To use these printers, you must install a print client to verify your account status.  Students can download all print clients from the Law School IT website at: https://www.law.uchicago.edu/students/life/IT/guides.  You can access your print account from the web while using the Law School wired or Wi-Fi network.  CHICAGOLAW credentials are used to access the web interface at: https://www.law.uchicago.edu/printaccount.  All students are given a $195.00 credit per academic year.

Print Job Cost:

  • $0.13 per printed side when printing on 8½ x 11-inch paper to a B/W printer 
  • $0.18 per printed side when printing on 8½ x 11-inch paper to the color printer
  • $0.26 per printed side when printing on 11 x 17-inch paper to a B/W printer 
  • $0.36 per printed side when printing on 11 x 17-inch paper to the color printer 

** Duplex print jobs count as two sheets**

** Pricing subject to change without notice**

Printer Location:

  • B/W printers are in the basement vending area and on the 2nd, 5th, & 6th floors
  • Color printers are in the 2nd floor Reserve Room and on the 4th floor

If you run out of credit at any time, any subsequent print jobs to the public printers will be automatically denied and deleted.

Students and Journal Members may install one or all of the printers they are allowed to access on their personal laptops.

Print Cards 

The Pre-Paid Print Card system allows you to purchase print cards from two locations at the law school in case your print quota is exhausted.  You will be able to redeem the cards while using the web printing interface.  It is your responsibility to manage your own print account.  Pre-paid print cards can be purchased from the Library Circulation Desk or the Law School Copy Center.

Print cards purchased during the course of any academic year are valid only until the end of that academic year.  Print cards will expire and will not be valid after July 31 of any single academic year.

Print cards are NON-REFUNDABLE

  • Once a print card is purchased, it is not refundable even if it is not used.  Purchase only the amount you need to ensure printer privileges are not automatically denied when your page quota reaches zero.

Print cards are NON-TRANSFERABLE

  • When a print card is purchased, and the code is entered/redeemed, the entire amount of the pre-paid card is added to your account.  Paid balance CAN NOT be transferred between student accounts.

Print cards are NON-NEGOTIABLE.

  • Pre-paid print cards can be used EXCLUSIVELY with the CHICAGOLAW Print system only for the purpose of adding credit to a printing account.  Pre-paid print cards have no cash value and cannot be used in any other function.

Any positive quota balance, whether part of the original printing credit OR the result of adding a pre-paid print card, will EXPIRE on July 31 of any academic year.  ABSOLUTELY NO REFUNDS will be issued for any positive print quota balance remaining at the end of any academic year.

Printing Errors

If you have an issue printing that involves a print job, you can request a refund at: https://www.law.uchicago.edu/printaccount (uses CHICAGOLAW username).

Law Journals Printing

Current Journal Members of Law Review, Business Law Review, CJIL, or Legal Forum are entitled to print to their journal’s printers without affecting their personal printing credit.  Journal Members have additional printers available for their use from any journal computer.  Printer availability will vary depending on the journal membership of a computer being used.  Students should use the journal printers for any print jobs associated with journal tasks.  Journal Members may print to their journal printers from their personal laptops.  Special printer names marked with the prefix JRN_ are available for Journal Members.  The JRN_ print queues are available only from a student’s personal laptop and correspond to the same physical device as the non-prefix printer name.

EXAMPLE:

lawrev_prntr_01

This is the regular printer name of the journal printer available only to LawReview members from all LawReview Journal computers.

JRN_lawrev_prntr_01

This printer name would be available only to current LawReview members from their personal laptops.  While the name is different, it is the same physical printer as lawrev_prntr_01.

Any print jobs submitted to a printer with the JRN_ prefix WILL NOT count towards a student’s personal print quota.  It is the Journal Member’s responsibility to use the journal printers when sending print jobs associated with their journal assignments.  Personal printing should be submitted to public printer queues and will be billed at the regular rate.  NO REFUNDS will be given if Journal Members use incorrect printer queues for Journal print jobs and have their personal quotas charged.  Student Journal coordinators may audit the use of the JRN_ printer usage to ensure that print jobs submitted to these print queues are part of a Journal assignment.  Journal Membership status is evaluated periodically to ensure only current Journal Members have access to the JRN_ printers.  The journal printers that have the JRN_ option enabled are listed below in the Journals section of the Law School Printers part of this guide.  To successfully use any of these printers, a student must be a current member of the Journal organization indicated next to each printer name.  Please note that when a student’s journal association ends, any print jobs submitted to the JRN_ printers will be denied and automatically deleted.

Law Clinic Student Printing

Clinic Students are entitled to print to the three public clinic printers without affecting their personal quota.  Clinic Students may print to three public clinic printers from their personal laptops.  Any print jobs submitted to a printer with the clk_ prefix WILL NOT count towards a student’s personal print quota.  It is the Clinic Clerk’s responsibility to use the clinic printers when sending print jobs associated with their clinic clerk tasks.  Personal printing should be submitted to public printer queues and will be billed at the regular rate.  NO REFUNDS will be given if Clinic Students use incorrect printer queues for clinic print jobs and have their personal quotas charged.  Clinic Coordinators may audit the use of the clk_printer usage to ensure that print jobs submitted to these print queues are part of a clinic clerk's assignments.  Clinic Student Membership status is evaluated periodically to ensure only current Clinic Students have access to the clk_printers.  The three clinic printers that can be used by Clinic Students are listed below in the Clinic Student section of the Law School Printers part of this guide.  To successfully use any of these printers, a student must be a current member of the Clinic Project Group.  Please note that when a clinic student’s association ends, any print jobs submitted to the clk_printers will be denied and automatically deleted.

Install Print Client: PaperCut

The print client software must be installed and actively running for print jobs to be successful to any of the Law School’s printers.  Print jobs submitted to these printers without the print client being installed or actively running will not print and will be deleted.  The print client requires the use of your CHICAGOLAW credentials.  These are the same credentials used to access the law school computers on the 4th, 5th, and 6th floors.  If you do not know your CHICAGOLAW credentials, please contact the Help Desk at helpdesk@law.uchicago.edu.  Your personal print account (https://www.law.uchicago.edu/printaccount) can be accessed from a web browser while you are connected to the Law School’s wired or Wi-Fi network.
