Classroom Environment and Use of Electronic Devices

Classroom environment
Student participation is essential to legal education, and instructors reserve the right to set expectations about classroom conduct. Activities that disrupt or distract from learning are not permitted. Prohibited activities include, but are not limited to: use of laptops or other electronic devices for any non-class-related functions (i.e. instant messaging, email, social networking, web browsing, games, etc.), or use of cell phones, smartphones, music players, or similar electronic devices. Any device capable of generating noise should be turned off or silenced during each class.

Recording of Classes
If you miss class due to a medical problem or other emergency, and want your classes audio recorded, you must obtain permission from your professor.
