Vanderbilt University Law School strives to implement technologies that support the educational and research mission of the School. A high-speed network, fully equipped smart classrooms, and both an Internet and Intranet Web presence provide the building blocks that the Information Technology (IT) unit uses to incorporate technology into teaching, scholarly activities and administrative functions of the Law School.
Computing services for students include a multi-workstation computer lab dedicated to Law School student use, a multi-workstation computer classroom, additional workstations in the library dedicated to accessing databases and electronic full-text searching, state-of-the-art classrooms, video conferencing services and the fully equipped Trial Courtroom. File storage space on the network and web-based electronic mail services are also provided. The IT department has also implemented a school-wide Wi-Fi network to provide high-speed wireless Internet access to Vanderbilt faculty, staff, students, and library patrons.
While at this time the Vanderbilt University Law School does not have a mandatory computer ownership policy, laptop systems are strongly recommended for students interested in purchasing their own computer.
