Let Your Major Be Your Guide
School of Law
Founded in 1872, The University of Missouri School of Law is a leader state and nationwide in the field of Law. In order to prepare students to be successful lawyers, policy makers, and judges it is recommended students purchase a laptop. The Law School has a wireless network for laptop users available throughout the Law Library and Law School classrooms. The wireless network is also available in many student areas across campus. The University of Missouri School of Law is predominately a Windows environment. There is basic support for Apple® computers in the Law School and advanced support available on campus.

A desktop computer is a lower cost alternative, however the primary advantage of a laptop is the portability it provides. There are 18 computers located throughout the Law Library that are available for law student use, and four Smart Suites available with digital displays and HDMI cables for connectivity and collaborative study. A student with a laptop and a wireless card will have access to Internet resources and productivity software virtually everywhere throughout our wireless network. Students can also install PrintAnywhere software to allow their laptops to print to the computer lab printers. PrintAnywhere printers are located on the lower level of the Law Library.

Factors to keep in mind when shopping for a laptop:

The Law School provides basic support for Windows and Mac® computers. The Law School does not provide hardware support and recommends TigerTech for service for laptops.

Academic priced software:

  • Microsoft Office is available at no charge to all currently enrolled students and includes OneDrive with 1TB of cloud storage.
  • The Division of IT can install Microsoft Office during Summer Welcome.
  • Other reduced-price software is available at TigerTech.

Exams on computers:

No virtual Machines or emulators are permitted.  The list of supported Operating systems is updated each academic year before fall midterm exams.  Do not upgrade or install any Operating System until the Law School IT Department posts the approved list.  

The School of law will post updated computer recommendations by June 1.  For information on this recommendations, please visit:
