Policies and Procedures

Below is a list of all the topics on which you can find information on policies and procedures. The Policies and Procedures page is in the process of being updated. For questions about information not contained below, contact the Dean of Students Office at lawdos@umn.edu.

Event Planning

If you are planning an event, please see the Event Planning Guide on w: Inside.Law/Facilities & Events for information about planning, resources, equipment, and general issues.

Room Reservations

w: Inside.Law/Room and Technology Reservations

Follow the three easy steps to determine what rooms are available and to submit a room request: check room availability, request room, reserve technology. Once your request is properly submitted, you will immediately receive an autoreply email indicating such. Processing and confirmation of your room request will occur within 24-48 business hours, but typically sooner. Only after receiving confirmation of your room reservation may you publicize event details. AV/Ed Tech needs for events should be requested as soon as confirmation is received http://www.law.umn.edu/events/technologyreservation.html

Room assignments for Law School classes take priority at the beginning of each semester. As a result, non-class requests will be held in queue until the class schedule is completed and entered into the system and then requests in queue will be responded to in the order that they were received. For questions regarding room reservations or to request a demonstration on how to reserve a room contact lawrooms@umn.edu.
