Technology is integrated into all aspects of the learning environment at the law school, evidenced by Mercer Law being named at the "Top of the Technology Class" among all law schools nation-wide for its use of technology (National Jurist Magazine, January 2005) and one of the "Most Wired Law Schools" in the country (National Jurist Magazine, March 2001).
All incoming first year students receive personal laptop computers, to further prepare them for practicing law with technology. Faculty, staff and students have law school email accounts and individual network space for document storage.
Wireless access is available throughout the building and coverage extends to selected outdoor gathering areas. In the main law school classrooms, more than 600 student seats are wired with network access and electrical connections for personal laptop computers. These classrooms are also outfitted with state-of-the-art instructional technology including computers with DVD capability, VCRs, document cameras, and projectors. Interactive white boards in several seminar classrooms are used extensively by faculty, as well as by students in preparing for moot court competitions and trial practice. Similarly, the recently renovated Courtroom provides access to the latest courtroom technology, including sound, video, and computing capabilities for attorneys, judges, jurors, and students. Mercer is also among a growing number of law schools that allow students to write their exams on their laptops using secure exam software.
The law school web site has been designed to provide the entire law school community with information about the law school. Web resources offer every current student the ability to check course pages, assignments, and grades online, and all of our students are also able to add student organizational meetings, announcements, and items of interest to an online interactive calendar.
