Laptop Requirements - Minimum specifications


All incoming SHU Law students are REQUIRED to possess a laptop that meets our minimum specifications and use it for various class purposes and all law school exams.  As the law school classroom experience integrates technology daily through our wireless network and all law school exams are taken using exam software, having and using a laptop is essential to a successful law school career.  As many students already own a laptop, please make sure yours meets our minimum specifications below and you should be ready for class.
