Law Admissions

Admissions Question: August 5

August 05, 2018

Q. Do you require that students have laptops and if so, does the school have a specific kind that students must use?

A: The law school does not require students to purchase a laptop computer but students are highly encouraged to purchase/bring their own computer.  You can use the lab computers whenever they’re available, but most students find that a laptop is an essential resource. Regardless of which type you bring, Mac or PC, please make sure it isn’t too old, that it’s in good working order (no viruses or spyware), and has the latest updates. We support Windows 7/8/10 for PCs. For Macs, please have the latest OS X 10.13 installed. OS X  10.8 and 10.9 are OK too but please consider upgrading to 10.10, 10.11, or 10.12.

Also, the law school uses a computer-based exam system. The vendor we use is ExamSoft. Most laptops less than five years old will meet the minimum system requirements. We provide ExamSoft free of charge to all our law students.
