PLEASE NOTE:  The instructions for posting class recordings for 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.
