TechLawAnnounce

TechLawAnnounce allows students to keep informed about Law School news, activities and current events. This resource allows students to not only read Law School news, but also post announcements. Before posting you will need to read the posting policy which is covered later in this document.

TechLawAnnounce is an email that is sent once a day. It is a list of posted announcements in a short summary format with a link to the full announcement. Another advantage of TechLawAnnounce is the ability to search all postings, including older ones, even if the original email has been deleted. Following is a description of how to access and use TechLawAnnounce.

Further questions or problems please can be directed to Law School Computer Support (in room 227 of the Law School Library), or via phone 806-742-3990 ext 318, or via email at
computersupport.law@ttu.edu, or attend a Laptop Connection Session during Orientation.
