  • Mailman at Loyola Law School

    The Mailman List Manager

    ITS provides a central mailing list service for faculty, staff and students to further their work at the Law School. The service is driven by a list management system called Mailman. Maintenance and configuration of mailing lists can be performed through a web browser. Subscription and unsubscribe requests can be performed via an email client.

    To assist in making the transition to Mailman, the following documents provide a useful starting point for list subscribers, moderators and administrators.

    Information for List Subscribers (list "members")

Please review the contents of the accompanying Mailman List Request notes in order to assist in making suitable configuration choices for your new list.

Please contact the ITS Help Desk at helpdesk@lls.edu or 213-736-1097 for further assistance.

  • Examination Software

    EXAMINATION SOFTWARE 'EXAMPLIFY' (BY EXAMSOFT)

    Examplify is the Law School's Official Examination Software;
    The former examination software (SofTest) was retired as of August 31, 2017. Students should not attempt to use SofTest, but instead, they should use the new testing application software 'Examplify,' which is now the Law School's official examination software. Examplify will offer students the same offline, locked-down platform that the former examination software had employed. Because Examplify will have a different look and feel, students are strongly encouraged to download, register and thoroughly test Examplify as soon as it is available, but at least 2 - 3 weeks before your first exam. This will give students ample time resolve any issues that may arise with running Examplify on your computer.
