About IT & Media Services

The University of New Mexico School of Law’s Information Technology Department strives to provide students, faculty and staff with access to the most current information technology available. The department’s commitment to accessibility is intended to aid the legal education of our students, as well as the research and improvement of the state's justice system. Accessibility is its focus, and law school offices, classrooms, and computer workstations are equipped with devices capable of connecting to UNM's high-speed network. The IT Department is located in the Hart Wing, Room 3403.

Computer Use Guidelines

Use of the law school computer equipment is subject to UNM Business and Regents' policies, New Mexico state law and U.S. federal law. The University Business Policies and Procedures Manual provides guidelines for computer use by students, faculty and staff. Section 2500 documents overall acceptable computer use and includes "Computer User Guidelines" (Policy 2510) and "Computer Security Controls and Guidelines" (Policy 2520). Law school computer use policies are located on the law school intranet.
