This unit is responsible for maintaining a computer laboratory with computers and printers for students. It also developed and maintains an electronic classroom with computers. The classroom is used primarily for the instruction of legal research courses. All these computers are networked and have access to the Internet, MicroSoft Office and Explorer. They can be used to access online systems such as Westlaw, Lexis and Microjuris. The technology and equipment provide ways to access information that is not available on paper. It also allows the student to perform research through online methods.
In the computer lab students can also work on their papers using word-processing and software programs. The electronic classroom is useful for legal research classes because it allows the student to practice while instruction regarding online services is offered and to complete exercises given during class.
