Berkeley Law students with disabilities should contact for information about services available at the Law School and to arrange for any accommodations necessary to use computing resources.

Welcome, New Berkeley Law Students!

New Summer LL.M. 2024 students were shown an orientation presentation about Berkeley Law library and student computing resources. The orientation slides are available here (requires login to your Berkeley account). All of the computing topics and links covered during the orientation presentation are also available within the pages of this online computing guide.

We have made PDF versions of our Printing handout and Wireless handout available for easy reference. The same information is also available within this computing guide in the printing and wireless sections.

If you have any technical support questions, please do not hesitate to reach out by emailing us, or chatting with us during business hours! If you have more general library inquiries, consult the law library's Contact Us page to find the best way of getting assistance.

About the Computer Lab and Student Computing

Berkeley Law's computer lab is located in Room LL131 in the law library and is staffed by our student labtechs (seated at the library front desk), who can provide you with answers to general and technical questions.

The lab has 15 Mac and Windows PCs, access to multiple high-speed HP LaserJet printers and a number of easy-to-use touchscreen scanning stations that can scan books and documents to e-mail, a USB drive, a printer, or Google Drive.

Use of the computer lab is reserved for enrolled law students only. Other UCB students and the general public may use the computers, scanners, and printers in the public areas of the library for research purposes. Printing service from these public computers is available through the Cal1Card guest card system for a fee.
