Computer Requirements

Taft Law School faculty believe evidence of computer literacy is required to earn a credible graduate degree in any discipline. Technology also plays an important part in a student’s ability to communicate with administration, faculty, and fellow students. Accordingly, all students (including students enrolled in independent study courses) must have access to a computer with the minimum specifications set forth in the current Taft Law School General Catalog.
