    Loaner laptop for a broken computer

    There are both Windows and Mac laptops for faculty and staff with broken LMU computers. Lending of these laptops will be managed through the repair process with the ITS Field Services team.

These computers will be comparable to ones in the RMP program and will be provided while the other computer is being fixed.

  • 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.

    Download Examplify

    • Log into the ExamSoft Portal
      • Log into your account using the credentials at the bottom of the account activation email that was sent to you.

    If you experience technical difficulty with software, call ExamSoft Support at 866-429-8889 (option #3), Monday - Friday, from 8:30 AM to 5:30 PM (EST). You should have your computer with you as well as an active internet connection before calling Examplify as their customer support technician may need to connect to your machine to diagnose and resolve your problem.
