The Law School has amended the policy on the posting of flyers and other materials around the building. In addition to saving trees, the goals of the new policy are: to reduce the clutter of flyers taped to the surfaces in the building; present a neater appearance for visitors; protect painted surfaces from marring; and make better use of the cleaning staff time.
The new language limits the posting of flyers and other materials to designated bulletin boards and the new bulletin strips that have been installed throughout the building.
The administration would also like to remind everyone that announcements of events and deadlines are appropriate for posting to the firstname.lastname@example.org listserve. Forum@mail.law.cuny.edu can be used for discussions. (Please review the listserve policies for further information.) We encourage that in lieu of paper postings, community members use either calendar or forum listserves to disseminate information whenever possible.
If anyone feels that we should add more bulletin boards/strips, please see Dean Burton or call Student Affairs (718 340-4207).
From the 2005-2006 Student Handbook:
POLICY ON POSTING MATERIALS IN THE LAW SCHOOL
The posting of notices and other materials is permitted only on appropriate bulletin boards/strips or designated public surfaces. Notices are not permitted on surfaces in public areas of the building, including walls, classroom/seminar doors, lockers, windows, partitions and bathroom stalls.
Except for postings on student organization and administration bulletin boards, all materials displayed on bulletin boards/strips elsewhere in the building must include 1) the name of the CUNY School of Law student, faculty or staff member or organization/office responsible for the posting and 2) the date of the event, deadline or the day of the posting. The individual or organization named on the posting is responsible for taking down the material. Postings by anyone else will be permitted at the discretion of the Dean of Students.
The Law School reserves the right to take down all postings that do not comply with the policy or those displayed for over two weeks from the posting date or the advertised event or deadline.
