  • Distribution Lists at Loyola Law School

    Distribution Lists at Loyola Law School

    ITS provides two types of distribution lists: 1) internal, which allow for @lls.edu or @lmu.edu addresses only; and 2) external, which allows for any email address to subscribe. Maintenance and configuration of mailing lists can be performed through a web browser. Subscription and unsubscribe requests can be performed via email. Some lists may not be unsubscribed from as they serve as official notice channels.

    Internal Lists (Outlook 365)

    To request the creation of a new internal distribution list, first ensure that all recipients will have @lls.edu or @lmu.edu email addresses. Once this is confirmed, please send the following information to the ITS Helpdesk:

    1. List email address (e.g. research-group@lls.edu)
    2. List display name (e.g. LLS Research Group) All LLS-related lists must have “LLS” at the beginning.
    3. Name of list administrators (must be users who have @lls.edu or @lmu.edu email addresses). Please submit at least two users to be administrators on the list.

    External Lists (Lyris)

    If you need a list that has external (non-@lls.edu or non-@lmu.edu) email addresses, you will be using a list management system called Lyris. Please note that all Lyris list email addresses end in @lists.lls.edu.

    Once you have confirmed that you have external email addresses, please contact Corinne St. Claire at corinne.stclaire@lls.edu to start the request and setup process.

  • 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.

    EndNote X9 for macOS has been updated for compatibility with Catalina. If you already have EndNote X9, please install all updates as they become available to avoid interruption in your workflow.
     
    EndNote X8 and earlier for macOS Users
    Since Apple has made the decision to drop all 32-bit application support, we expect that macOS 10.15 Catalina will not run EndNote X8 and earlier. However, we want to continue to support you. We recommend one of two options:

    • We are offering to all EndNote X8 and earlier users on macOS a 50% discount off of our standard upgrade price to EndNote X9, which has been updated for Catalina compatibility. In addition, you’ll have access to X9’s great new features, such as read-only library sharing, newly refreshed styles, and more.
