Class Recordings: Information for Students

How to Make a Request

The Law School does not have sufficient staff to record classes for every student who is unable to attend classes. The Law School will record classes for a student only when an absence is due to a serious illness, family emergency, or similar event, such as observance of a religious holiday, class conflicts caused by make-up classes, jury duty, or military obligation. Classes are recorded using digital voice recorders.

To have a class session recorded by the Media Services Department:

  • Your professor must send a request DIRECTLY to Media Services for that specific class.
  • We suggest you email your professor for approval and cc Greg Stack and David Luce
How to Borrow a Digital Recorder

Digital voice recorders may be checked out at the circulation desk. Recordings will be posted on the Class Recordings list (see box above).

NOTE: The Law School’s Rules of Professional Conduct for Law Students prohibits making, using, or distributing class or other law school presentation recordings in an unauthorized manner (Section IV.C.8).

Class Recordings: Information for Faculty

How to Make a Request

If you wish to have a class session recorded by Media Services using a handheld digital recorder, you must send your request DIRECTLY to Greg Stack and David Luce for that specific class. The law library does not accept requests to record from students.

Where are Recordings Posted?
If a class session is recorded using a library-supplied handheld digital recorder, an url for the mp3 file is posted to the law library’s Class Recordings webpage.  Recordings are restricted to current CUA law students only. Law students must enter name and law library barcode to access the recordings.
 
Faculty members may choose to opt out of the law library’s Class Recordings List.  If a faculty member opts out, he/she is then responsible for distributing digital recordings to students. If you do not want your digital class recordings posted to the law library’s Class Recordings List, please email Frances Brillantine.
How Will I Receive Recording URLs?

David Luce will email the url(s) to each faculty member.

Please note:
  •  Students may check out digital recorders at the circulation desk. Class recordings made by students are also posted to the law library’s class recordings webpage, unless the professor has opted out.
  • The Law School’s Rules of Professional Conduct for Law Students prohibits making, using, or distributing class or other law school presentation recordings in an unauthorized manner (Section IV.C.8).
