About the newsletter
The College of Law Newsletter System provides a convenient, easy-to-use method for getting information out to students, faculty, and staff every week. The deadline for submission of a newsletter item to be included in the following week's newsletter will be 5 PM every Friday.
Items that have been added to the College of Law Events Calendar will automatically be considered for entry in the newsletter. Newsletter items can be run for multiple weeks. Please keep in mind that this is subject to approval by the Director of Communications, who is the final authority on what is included in each week's newsletter. Please review the College of Law Policy Regarding Student-Body-Wide Email Announcements.
Important: For events, you must follow the proper procedures for reserving rooms. Announcing your event in the newsletter does not equate to a room reservation.
