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 the Center for Disability Access and Resources (CDAR). 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 CDAR.
Students with a long-term illness or emergency who have received permission from the Associate Dean of Students, or who are absent due to a required College of Law event and have received permission from their professor may request that their classes be recorded using the Class Recording Request Form linked below. For students with short term absences such as illness due to the common cold or who are only planning on being absent for one day should work with classmates and/or their professors on materials missed. You are still required to receive permission from your professor or the Associate Dean of Students to record class before submitting a recording request.
Please submit audio recording requests at least 24 hours in advance (or ASAP in cases of emergencies) and we will make every effort to record your classes. While every effort will be made to provide these recordings, these recordings are provided as a convenience to our students and 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.
NOTE: Your name and email address will be pulled automatically from your login. If you have more than one University of Idaho email account, be sure you are logged in with your student account before submitting your request.
ALERT: Due to the concerns with the Coronavirus and the high volume of expected absences due to illness, there has been a temporary change to the recording policy. LawTech does not have the time, tools, or infrastructure to manage such a high volume of class recordings. For the time being, all recordings resulting from absences due to illness are to be recorded by the faculty themselves and are not recorded by LawTech. If you need to be absent due to illness or illness of a family member, please work directly with your faculty to receive recordings of your classes.
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. 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 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
