As a student or employee of CUNY School of Law, you are a subscriber to the two community-wide listservs. Listservs are simply group emails. When email is addressed to a listserv, it is sent to everyone who subscribes to the list.
The two school-wide listservs are:
1) email@example.com (and 2) firstname.lastname@example.org
Each of these listservs has a special function and notices may be posted to one or the other, but not both.
email@example.com provides the medium for all members of the Law School to announce to the entire community, events or deadlines that may be of interest. Messages for calendar are restricted to information about activities, scholarships, employment opportunities or other programs or events occurring both within and outside of the Law School. The text should contain specific dates and, when applicable, locations of the events.
You may receive messages from this list serve as they are posted, or in two other ways. In "index" mode, you will receive just the headings of all of the prior day's email in one message. In "digest" mode, you will receive both the headings and the text of all of the prior day's email in a single message. Instructions on how to change your subscription to index or digest are found at the bottom of each calendar message.
Because administrative offices in the Law School use "calendar" to post messages for which community members may need to respond in a timely manner, students, faculty and staff will NOT be able to unsubscribe from this listserv.
firstname.lastname@example.org serves as an electronic "town meeting" where subscribers can discuss, debate and introduce topics of concern or general interest.
Similar to email@example.com, you can elect to receive messages as they are posted or, if you would like, receive them in two other ways: "index" or "digest" mode, as described in the preceding paragraph. However, you are permitted to unsubscribe from "Forum."
The posting of messages on all Law School email accounts and the use of all computer resources of CUNY are subject to the provisions of the CUNY Computer User Responsibilities policy. Please refer to the current CUNY School of Law Student Handbook for the complete text. PLEASE NOTE THAT COMPUTER RESOURCES MAY NOT BE USED FOR COMMERCIAL PURPOSES.
The Law School is committed to an email system that serves as as important and essential communication medium. The CUNY Law email policy continues to be a community product intended to balance opportunity for discussion within the limitations of our available resources and an individual's right to opt-out of certain kinds of unsolicited emails. To preserve such a system requires that all members adhere to guidelines and respect the rights and needs of others. Please help us manage this essential resource.
Should you have any questions, you can address them to the Dean of Students.
