Our job in IT is to support the School of Law community's technology needs in whatever form they may arise. Email for help or questions about any of the information below. Additionally, the main University has several resources which can answer your questions.

One of the most important functions your laptop will serve during your law school career will be to take exams. Currently we utilize ExamSoft's Examplify software. Before purchasing a laptop please check the minimum requirements for use with Examplify.

A 3 or 4 year warranty will cover your laptop from manufacturer's defects for the duration of your legal studies and may also cover it as you study for and take your state's bar examination.

PLEASE NOTE we do not currently support the use of iPads, Chromebooks, or tablets for examinations. Additionally, Microsoft Surface and Surface Pro laptop/tablets have several hardware and software compatibility issues with Examplify, the software you will be using for your exams. Before buying one please contact us for advice, and if you have one already please check with us to see if we can make it compatible.


macOS 14 (Sonoma) preferred - macOS 12 (Monterey) is the earliest version still supported by our examination software, Examplify.

Storage Drive: At least 512 GB.



  • Intel – Windows 11 compatible 12th generation Core mobile processor or better

We recommend the i5 processor or better which should serve you better over your law school career. Similarly, with AMD based CPU's we recommend a recent generation Ryzen 5 or better processor.

PLEASE NOTE that the exam software that we currently use does not support devices that utilize ARM-based processors, which are used in many Microsoft Surface and Surface Pro laptops.
