It will be up to the faculty member to choose which is the best remote delivery option for their class: 1-Zoom: to hold live class meetings or 2- Panopto: using recorded lectures. Students should check their Lewis & Clark email frequently for class information from their instructors.

Printing on the Lab/Student Printers with PCOUNTER
In the interest of sustainability and conservation of resources, students are permitted 1000 free printed pages per calendar year. If you exceed your 1,000 free page limit during the year your account will be charged five cents for each additional sheet you print and the overage will be billed to your account in May for graduating students or August for returning students. Also, if you don’t use up your 1,000 free page quota for the year, the leftover balance does not ‘roll over’ to the next year if you’re a returning student.
Printing is controlled by “Pcounter,” a server application that tracks individual student printing use. After a lab assistant helps you install the 3 student printers you are now ready to print at the law school. The printers are located in the Student Computer Lab, the Boley stacks, and the Wood Hall 1st floor student study area.

1. Click: File > Print > Select the printer that you want to print to (i.e. Boley, Lab, Wood Hall)

- Students who receive federal financial aid may request that the purchase price of a new computer be added to their Cost of Attendance once during their program at L&C. This adjustment must be requested during the same academic year that the computer is purchased and an itemized, dated receipt is required for documentation. The maximum adjustment is $2,500. In most cases this adjustment will increase Grad PLUS Loan eligibility. For more information, please contact the Financial Aid Office at 503-768-7090 or email@example.com.
