The Law School maintains an email list of all law students for
dissemination of administrative information. In many cases, information
is circulated only via email so it is important for you to check your
email frequently. These messages will be sent to your University email
address. (If you typically use a non-University email address, you should set up a forward of your University email to the one you use most frequently.) The lists are populated each fall in late August using
university records of Academic Level (e.g. “P1,” “P2,” “P3” for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd-year Law students, respectively). These lists are
frozen until the following fall, at which point all lists will be
updated to reflect current academic level as of late August.
Students who graduate in August or December will removed from the lists about a month later. Students who graduate in May will stay on the lists until end of August.
To see which email lists are you are on, or to add additional lists please visit http://law.wisc.edu/help/emaillists/.
level is determined by the number of credits you have completed, not on
the length of time you have been at the Law School. The breakdown is as
0 – 29 credits = P1 (1L)
30 – 55 credits = P2 (2L)
56 or more credits = P3 (3L)
Your Student Record shows your academic level for each semester, including the current term. If your academic level changes during the school year you will remain on the email list on which you began the year unless you change your email list as indicated above.
The UW’s Division of Information Technology (DoIT) has free training for students that covers databases, word processing, spread sheets, Web design, graphics, and more.
