Policies and Requests
This page details several of LawTech's policies for specific service requests. Please familiarize yourself with these policies before submitting a requests. They outline the proper procedure, timeline and details for each type of request. In each section you will also find a link to the official request form for that type of request. If you have additional questions or have a request that is not covered below you can still contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
LawTech offers classroom and technology support for College of Law events only. For non College of Law events you must contact Event Services by emailing email@example.com or calling 208-885-6956.
LawTech does not schedule rooms for events. If you have not already scheduled a room for your event, you need to fill out the Room Request Form. Once you have received your room confirmation, you can request LawTech assistance by completing the LawTech Support Request form below.
If you need technology assistance for your event, you must contact LawTech prior to the event to arrange for support. Deadlines for support requests are as follows:
- 48 hours prior to the event for events happening during business hours. (8:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday)
- 7 days prior to the event for events happening after hours.
- 14 days prior to the event for events happening on weekends.
If you have a large event or an event with more specialized needs, (such as web streaming) please contact LawTech as soon as possible to make sure we can accommodate your needs.
If you are requesting video conferencing to rooms 106 or 107 in Moscow or rooms 124 or 307 in Boise, a Zoom connection will be needed. All faculty, staff and students at the U of I have access to a free Zoom Pro account. Due to the limitation on the number of active meetings per account, all event organizers will be expected to schedule and provide their own Zoom connection information. To set up your account and schedule meetings, go to the Uidaho Zoom page and sign in with your U of I NetID.
If you are requesting your event to be recorded and you have guest speakers who are not affiliated with the College of Law, you must have each speaker fill out an Event Recording Release Form. These forms need to be completed and returned to LawTech before the recording of the event will be released.
LawTech will review all requests for technical support and respond with our availability. Requests made after the deadlines listed above will not be supported unless staffing is already available.
Students may not electronically record classes unless they have the express consent of the instructor, except where the Dean of Students has allowed recording as a disability accommodation pursuant to a recommendation by Disability Support Services. Recording classes without the instructor’s express consent violates the Honor Code. Students recording classes as a disability accommodation must follow procedures set down by DSS. Students who are unable to attend class for reasons of illness or other exigencies must receive permission from the instructor before classes are recorded on their behalf.
Please submit audio recording requests at least 24 hours in advance (or ASAP in cases of emergencies) and LawTech will make every effort to record your classes. While every effort will be made to provide these recordings, these recording are not guaranteed even if requested or approved. Regardless of the ability to provide a recording of the class, it is the student's responsibility to make up for any information missed due to absence.
LawTech has several loaner laptops available for emergency use during exams. These laptops are for exams only, and not checked out for daily use. These laptops can be reserved for exams on a first come first served basis.
To receive a loaner laptop you must contact LawTech prior to your exam with a legitimate need for a loaner. Any request for a loaner laptop will need to be verified by LawTech. Due to the limited number of loaners, no loaner requests will be confirmed until LawTech has had a chance to look at the requester's computer and attempt to resolve any issues. If the issues can be resolved a loaner will not be issued. If a loaner laptop request is confirmed, LawTech will note the reservation and make the loaner available on the day of the final exam.
Loaner laptops can be picked from LawTech 30 minutes before the exam begins, and must be returned to LawTech at the end of the exam.
Legitimate loaner laptop needs include but are not limited to;
- Inability to run Examplify
- Failure to meet minimum computer requirements
- Lack of access to a laptop
