Computer Use at Liberty Law

As a student at Liberty Law, you are encouraged to own your own computer. Laptop computers are popular due to their portability, usefulness in class and in exams, and wireless access in the School of Law.

Classrooms are equipped with electrical outlets (two per table) and wireless capabilities to accommodate the use of laptop computers during class. Our requirements include the following:

  • Only portable computers may be used in the classroom
  • Use of printers in the classroom is prohibited
  • Computer volume should be set so that no audible signal is heard
  • Screen Savers should be set to a black screen (none)
  • In any situation where a computer causes a disruption in the classroom, the professor may require that computer use be discontinued

Computer Resources

Consult the Liberty University IT Marketplace for updated recommendations on hardware and software so you can achieve optimum computer performance and network support.

The IT Marketplace can also help with these needs:

  • Computer specifications
  • Special prices on purchasing a computer
  • Special pricing of up to 80% off normal retail for Microsoft software

Liberty Law Examination Software

The law school offers students the opportunity to type midterm and final examinations in a secured word processing environment using Exam4 software, the same software chosen by the Virginia Board of Bar Examiners for the Virginia bar examination. Exam4 blocks disallowed materials, protects the examination with frequent autosaves and backups, and encrypts the examination file for security. All students who elect to type their examinations must use the Exam4 software. Instructions for downloading, installing, and testing the software are provided by law library staff two weeks before law school exams begin. Exam4 provides a list of supported operating systems.
