The Seattle University School of Law is a recognized leader in integrating technology with education. The school uses computing resources extensively in the curriculum, for research, for communications within the law school community, and for external communications.

Because of the importance of access to networked information in all aspects of student life and the extent to which the school relies on electronic communications, the School of Law requires that all entering students own a portable computer capable of accessing the Internet from home as well as via Ethernet within the School of Law.

There are two options available for all students entering the Law school: the Dell purchase program or another laptop that meets our current laptop requirements. If you decide to take advantage of the purchase program, reviewing the laptop requirements will be unnecessary, as all of the computers offered meet or exceed every requirement listed.

Other Laptop Computers

Should you already own a relatively new laptop or choose not to purchase a Dell through the student program, your portable computer must meet the following minimum specifications. Mac OS might not work with some of the School of Law’s specific applications. For consistency and ensuring we are able to provide the best support possible, Windows machines are recommended at this point in time.

For financial assistance in purchasing your laptop, look into our financial aid options for incoming students. Make sure your computer is able to connect to the network.
