Our ITS office offers several technology resources for journals and recognized student organizations. These services are listed below.
The recommended method of contacting the IT support staff is to send an email to LawHelp@law.syr.edu, and this should be used for these requests or any other IT related request. Depending on your request, you might need to give up to 48 hours advance notice.
Each organization has an email account that should be used for communication on behalf of the organization or journal. Using this account provides continuity when your executives change. It also allows information to be shared since multiple students can access the account. To give additional students access to the email account, we need the names and SU email addresses.

The College of Law provides shared network space on the G drive to store your organization’s files. Please DO NOT save any files directly to the office computer’s C drives. We will not be responsible for any files lost from the computers. The G drive is backed up and the data saved there can be accessed from your laptops using SURA tool on a PC, or the VPN on your Mac. If your organization does not have any shared space or if you need to add your new members, please let us know. We will need a list of the names and NetIDs (or SU email addresses) of the members that you wish to give access.
