All first year students are required to have a laptop to support their educational experience at the University of Denver Sturm College of Law. Information on the minimum laptop specifications needed to support the software applications used in legal education can be found here.
You are responsible for the ongoing maintenance of your operating system, antivirus and applications. The University provides antivirus software. The law school has a site license for WordPerfect – ask at helpdesk for installation disk.
If you live in or are visiting the Denver area, please stop by the Sturm College of Law Helpdesk after you purchase your new laptop so that we can help you become comfortable with the law school computing environment. During new student orientation week we will also be having informational sessions at the law school.

Corporate Laptop Policy
If a corporation owns the laptop computer students will use for classes and on-campus network access at DU, the Sturm College of Law cannot provide technical support. This includes hardware/software installations, hardware/software upgrades, operating system configurations, system failures, network configuration/accessibility (both on campus and off campus) and overall system troubleshooting. This is to protect both the University and the outside corporation. Some corporations lock out non-business uses of the computer or open network access. Any attempt by DU to change those configurations could alter the corporate configuration or cause system instabilities.
A corporate laptop will likely not be able to access network resources at DU.
