PLEASE NOTE:  The specific URLs used in setting up class meetings in the College of Law will be changing for the Spring 2021 semester, as the College of Law's Zoom account is being integrated into the larger University account.  The information on this page will be updated to reflect the change once it is in place.  Additional information regarding this change can be found at Law - Zoom Account Migration.


It is preferable to set up a recurring meeting to be used for your class.  This allows the URL for the meeting to remain consistent throughout the semester, and will assist with the back-end management of recordings.
