We use PaperCut software. PaperCut encourages the responsible use of paper and printers, which helps maintain an environmentally sustainable school and is in keeping with the spirit of the School’s LEED Gold certification. Furthermore, PaperCut enhances confidentiality by optionally printing documents only after a user’s ID card is swiped at a printer. PaperCut works with both Mac OS X and Windows, and is available on the School’s student-use computers, as well as for installation on student-owned laptops. Rates for printing and copying are posted near student-accessible printers.

Phone Operation Instruction Manual


To use the Law School’s secure wireless network(s) the IT Dept. provides users with Cisco AnyConnect Secure Mobility Client, and for Mac users only, (Windows built in AntiVirus software is sufficient), the latest version of McAfee AntiVirus software. Please contact the Help Desk by email or phone (718 340 4456) for access to the staffwifi or studentwifi wireless networks and if necessary, AntiVirus software installation. Designed primarily for School visitors, generalwifi network access is obtained by contacting the IT Help Desk (718 340 4456).

Cisco Clean Access
The Cisco AnyConnect Secure Mobility Client is part of a system that automatically performs network validation on wireless devices, prior to allowing users onto the wireless network(s). In particular, Cisco AnyConnect Secure Mobility client software helps protect the end user’s network experience by redirecting vulnerable machines to a staging network site for repairs and updates. In this staging network site, machines can be updated and repaired without concern of infecting, or themselves being infected, with viruses.

Once you venture beyond “Guest” status (limited access – web surfing, email, etc.), it is required that your unit be validated by the remediation environment; i.e., remediation/updates may be required.

Cisco AnyConnect Secure Mobility Client will help assure that the network we all share stays protected; and, at the same time, help protect validated users. By installing Cisco AnyConnect Secure Mobility client software on your machine and logging into the network, the agent will determine if you have virus protection and system updates. Keeping your machine up to date with virus protection, anti-spyware/malware and systems updates helps ensure a safe and pleasant network experience for you and your colleagues.
