Zoom for Learning


Law Organizations with email accounts do not receive Zoom accounts. If you have a need for Zoom for an event or meeting, please use your individual, licensed @law Zoom account.

Meetings & Events

Zoom Safety

When creating a Zoom for a meeting or an event, pay close attention to the Safe Meeting Guidelines.

Things to keep in mind include:

  • Adjusting the security settings
  • Keeping links off of social media and website
  • Limiting screen sharing

Please see the details in the PDF below.


Your licensed @law student account enables you to record meetings and events locally to your device.

Once the Meeting is complete and you End the Meeting for All, your recording will stop.

Do not log off or close the computer. Wait for the recording to convert and then save it locally onto the computer.

Find the recording on the desktop and save it to a USB stick, or upload it to Google Drive.


Webinars are designed so that the host and any designated panelists can share their video, audio and screen. Webinars allow view-only attendees. They have the ability to interact via Q&A, Chat, and answering polling questions. 

On the other hand, meetings are designed to be a collaborative event with all participants being able to screen share, turn on their video and audio, and see who else is in attendance.


There are a limited number of 500 seat Zoom Webinar licenses available upon request for faculty, student (student organization use), and staff accounts. To request a license, email with complete event details and your role regarding the event; our staff will get back to you with a determination based on availability and appropriateness.
