Audio/Visual Equipment

Buying a Computer

Marquette University does not require that law students purchase a laptop, however, it is recommended. The Law School and the Law Library offer wireless internet access throughout the entire building. Some the University's vendors offer substantial discounts on hardware and software. For more information please consult the buying guide.

Data Storage and backup

We recommend that all students backup their critical files on a regular basis to either an external drive or a clouds storage solution. The rule of thumb is to backup anything that can’t be replaced. For more information on cloud backups, read

Lecture/Event Capture

Lecture capture is available for students upon request. Students are required to request the permsisson of the faculty member and request the recording 12 hours in advance for scheduling purposes. Day of and last minute requests will not be scheduled. Faculty are required to activate the monitor in the smart classroom and activate the microphone. The student(s) requesting the recording will be emailed a secure link requiring their Marquette login in order to view or listen to the recording. Request a recording
