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 email@example.com.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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. LawTech will need to review the request and ensure that the needs of your event and capabilities of the rooms you have booked are compatible and that staffing is available. 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, an event featuring high profile figures, or an event with more specialized needs, (such as a Zoom Webinar) please contact LawTech as soon as possible to make sure your needs can be accommodated.
If you are planning to use video conferencing, 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. Additional information on scheduling and managing Zoom meetings can be found on our Zoom Webpage.
If you are recording your event 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 you release the recording of the event.
Event organizers must have a representative present in each location (Moscow and/or Boise law building) for event setup. Even if LawTech is on hand in case of issues, the representative will be responsible for logging in to any systems that require it, and managing the event once setup is complete. 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.
LawTech does not record classes. If you wish to request a recording of a previous class or that a future class be recorded, you need to work with your professor and/or the Dean of Students.
LawTech has several loaner laptops available for emergency use during exams. These laptops are for in-person Examplify exams only, and not checked out for daily use or for use with remote exams, take-home exams, or Canvas exams. These laptops can be reserved for exams on a first-come-first-served basis. Loaner laptops are also still subject to the College of Law exam laptop rules (Student Agreement for Final Exams) and you will not receive any time extensions or other exceptions if any computer issues occur.
To receive a loaner laptop you must contact LawTech a minimum of two business days prior to your exam with a verified 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 LawTech is not able to resolve the issues on the requester's computer, the issue will be verified and a loaner laptop request will be confirmed. LawTech will need a minimum of two business day to prepare a computer for use.
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
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.
Please be aware, these laptops are provided on a first-come-first-served basis as a convenience from our available stock of excess computers. There are a limited number of these computers and they require time for LawTech to set up. Loaner laptops are not guaranteed for anyone who requests one even with a verified or legitimate request, and it is the students responsibility to find a solution for their exam or to handwrite if a loaner laptop is not available.
