Email Policies - General Use and Broadcast Email

Email at Seton Hall Law School is a service provided to the law school community for the purpose of improving and encouraging communication among our users.  It is provided in support of the teaching, research, and public service mission of the University, and the administrative functions that support that mission.  In an effort to maintain and manage this important resource, Rodino Center IT in conjunction with University Computing must adopt certain policies and procedures dedicated to preserving this resource for all users.  Therefore please be advised of the following:

General Use:

1. Users of electronic mail services are to be limited to current law school students, faculty, adjunct faculty, librarians and staff members, and those authorized by University Computing and the RCIT.

2. Electronic mail services may not be used for unlawful activities, commercial purposes or uses that violate other University policies or guidelines. The latter include, but are not limited to, policies and guidelines regarding intellectual property, or regarding sexual or other forms of harassment.

3. University email services shall not be used for purposes that could reasonably be expected to cause, directly or indirectly, excessive strain on any computing facilities, or unwarranted or unsolicited interference with others’ use of email or email systems.

4. Users in violation of these rules or regulations may be subject to sanctions up to and including the suspension or termination of email and network privileges and services.

Broadcast Email:

Seton Hall Law School defines broadcast email as any message or group of messages intended to be communicated to an audience greater than 100 email recipients, either inside or outside the University email system. However, as broadcast email is a useful tool to communicate to large groups, a procedure has been developed to meet this need.  Users wishing to send broadcast Email must send their request to the Asst. Dean for Student Services for approval and distribution. 

Bypassing this procedure shall be considered a severe email violation and subject to penalty up to and including the suspension or termination of email and network services.
