Electronic Mail Policy
All students are required to check their Suffolk University Law School student e-mail address on a regular basis. (i.e., firstname.lastname@example.org). This includes during school breaks and the summer session, regardless if a student is enrolled in classes during the breaks or summer session. All official school e-mail announcements and individual e-mail communications to students will be sent to the Suffolk University Law School student e-mail address. Often, email contains important information about the law program, requirements, a student’s enrollment status, and class information. Each student is required to read and respond, as appropriate, to all Suffolk University messages sent to this address.
Official communications will not be sent to students’ personal, non-Suffolk e-mail addresses. The Suffolk University Law School e-mail system allows students to forward messages to another e-mail account. Please note that if there are problems forwarding messages from a Suffolk University Law School student e-mail address to another address, students remain responsible for official communications sent to their Suffolk University Law School student e-mail address.
Students who choose to send communications (including documents such as take-home exams or papers) from non-Suffolk e-mail addresses assume the risk of non-delivery due to a problem with the non-Suffolk e-mail system.
Students who are experiencing difficulties with their Suffolk email are expected to contact the IT Service Desk as soon as possible to resolve the issue.
