Recording Classes Policy

Recording Class Lectures

Suffolk University Law School prohibits the audio and/or video recording of class lectures absent the express consent of the professor. Students who record class lectures without express permission may be subject to disciplinary action.

Students who have the express consent of a professor to record a class must make their own arrangements to record the class. University Media Services (UMS) is not available to record classes for individual students.

Unless otherwise expressly permitted by the professor, permission to record a class applies exclusively to the student who received permission from the professor. The recording may not be accessed or utilized by any other individual. No replication of the recording may be made without the express permission of the professor.

The Dean of Students will ask Media Services to record all classes held during certain religious observances including, but not limited to, Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur, Passover, and Good Friday. In such cases, faculty participation is voluntary.

Any professor may make any changes to the procedure regarding the recording of his or her own classes.

Students who are requesting recording of classes under the Americans with Disabilities Act must contact the Law School Dean of Students.

In accordance with the above policy, all students should be aware that any class, and discussions held therein, may be subject to recording.
