Network Access Policy
Network Access Policy for Lewis & Clark Law School
The Law School’s network is for the use of students, faculty, adjunct faculty, staff and alumni. Network access can either be by using computers owned by the school that are on the school network or it can be by connecting a personal laptop to the network.
Because we want to keep the network secure from viruses, spyware, and malware, laptop connection to the network requires that certain requirements must be met before the laptop can be connected to the network. Those requirements are explained below. Use of school-owned computer equipment is limited to those in the law school community.
PROTOCOLS FOR NETWORK ACCESS
Lab computers may be used by:
Lewis & Clark students
Alumni (No printing privileges)
Law School faculty and staff
Members of the bar (no printing privileges)

Law school computers installed in classrooms for teaching may be used by:
Full-time and adjunct faculty

Connecting your personal laptop to the network

Guest wireless access is available by selecting LCWIRELESS and choosing “guest” - this is limited network access for those that are not members of the LC community
LAPTOP COMPUTER (Windows) REQUIREMENTS FOR CONNECTING TO THE NETWORK
Those who are eligible for full network access with their personal laptop must meet certain basic requirements. First, the computer must have the latest Microsoft security updates, and have a valid and updated antivirus software application installed. Once that is confirmed, the user must install “Safe Connect” gateway software on the laptop. The process for installing the updates and the Safe Connect gateway software can be lengthy, please plan accordingly.
Those eligible who wish to connect to the network are highly encouraged to install all updates on the laptop before bringing it to the Law School. If you have questions or issues while installing the Safe Connect gateway software please make an appointment with the Computing Services Lab Help Desk to set up an appointment. The lab desk can be contacted at email@example.com or 503-768-6777.
MACINTOSH LAPTOP REQUIREMENTS FOR CONNECTING TO THE NETWORK
Those who are eligible to connect a Macintosh laptop to the network need to have a valid and updated antivirus application installed. Macintosh users will also need to sign in through the Safe Connect gateway.
ADDITIONAL INFORMATION REGARDING CLASSROOM TECHNOLOGY
Those wishing to use computers to assist in classroom presentations are encouraged to use the PC equipment in the classrooms or to make arrangements to borrow a Law School “media laptop” for the presentation(s). To do so, you may contact Law Media Services at firstname.lastname@example.org. Many folks prefer to bring their classroom materials or presentations with them on portable storage devices, such as USB flash memory keys. Then they can easily copy the data to the Law School provided computers in the classrooms.
