PirateNet/LawNet Portal Access and Microsoft Exchange Email
Seton Hall Law School provides a PirateNet/Lawnet Portal account and Microsoft Exchange email to all faculty, librarians, administrators, and staff for the expressed purpose of fostering workflow and communication among law school community members and outside email users. Our PirateNet/LawNet portal offers single sign-on access to important resources such as Microsoft Exchange email, Blackboard course management, personal Banner info (address info, pay stubs, tax records) as well as developing resources such as a Law School Announcements feed, Events Calendar and Law Faculty News.
Once a completed record is created for you in SHU's Banner HR system, a PirateNet/Lawnet account is created using the first 6 letters of your LAST name and the first 2 of your FIRST name. This 8 letter designation is known as your "shortname".
If your last name is less than 6 letters then your code is your entire last name and as much of your first name as needed to reach 8 letters. (Ex: smithjos for Joseph Smith). If your last and first name together do not consist of 8 letters, then use your entire last name and entire first name. (Ex. bellann for Ann Bell)
Your first time PirateNet/LawNet portal password is the first 4 letters of your last name in CAPS, then the last 4 of your social security number, then the # sign. (ex. SMIT1234# for Joseph Smith).
Once inside PirateNet/Lawnet, you can reach your OWA Microsoft Exchange email account by clicking on the button on the top navigation bar. Please note that your SHU email address is firstname.lastname@example.org, (ex. Joseph.Smith@shu.edu).
It is highly recommended that all first time network users change their SHU PirateNet/Lawnet password to something more private and easily remembered. You can change your password by clicking on the "Change Your Password" link in the status menu on the left.
