Law School Communication


E-mail is a primary mode of official communication at Penn Law. Students are advised to check their Law School provided e-mail accounts regularly, as important information from faculty or from individual administrative departments are posted to these accounts.

Students should also consider their privacy permissions in setting directory access to these accounts. Closing your account to other Law School users may prohibit you from timely access to important messages, for example, a message from the Office of Career Strategy that you have received an additional interview slot.

On the Docket

Penn Law has an on-line system providing the opportunity for faculty, departments, or authorized student groups to send notices of their events to the Penn Law community. This is a moderated system; all postings are pre-approved by the Communications and Students Affairs Offices. Items sent to On the Docket must be about events that have an educational or student-group specific social component and that are open to the Law School community or its members. The moderators reserve the right to reject any Notice they deem inappropriate.

The On the Docket system is available to all from the Student Commons:

Student Group Mail Folders

Recognized student groups are assigned mail folders for common use by group members. Material that has been placed in mailfolders shall not be removed except by the student to whom the folder is assigned, or by the individual who placed the material. Material may otherwise be removed only with the express permission of the Dean, Associate Dean, or Dean of Students.

Announcements or other material from non-University sources, whether individuals, organizations, or commercial enterprises, will not be permitted in the folders.


Signs may be posted in designated areas only. Material posted elsewhere (on walls, doors, windows, etc) will be removed and discarded. Exceptions may be made by the Director of Facilities.  If you would like your notice posted on one of the electronic community boards, please follow these instructions.
