Below is a list of items that you should know before the school starts. Each is essential for your success in law school, and we will be using them in your Law Library Orientation session. Please read and understand the information below in the order they are listed. When working on these items, if you are prompted for a username and password, unless otherwise indicated, use your C|M|LAW username and password.
As a C|M|LAW student, you will receive TWO sets of login credentials, one from CSU CampusNet and one from C|M|LAW.
