Atlanta’s John Marshall Law School does not make any requirement as to the brand of computer or the software used, with the following exceptions:

Students who wish to use their computers during exams must comply with the school’s published guidelines. These guidelines can be found on the Computer Exam Guidelines page of our web site.
Students who wish to use their computers to access the Internet, or the school’s public printers, must also meet certain additional requirements. These requirements are for security purposes and will be strictly enforced. These guidelines can be found on the Internet Access page of our web site.

Please Note: An up-to-date and active subscription to an approved anti-virus program is required to access the Internet, and any network resources ( i.e., printers) on the AJMLS network.

The school recommends that students use programs that are compatible with the software installed on our Computer Lab PCs in order to allow the student to easily transfer documents between computers and to submit assignments. The complete list of these programs can be found on the Recommended Software page of our website.

The Information Technology staff of AJMLS is available during their posted office hours. The school cannot provide any form of repair or data recovery service, and is not responsible for any failure of student owned equipment or software.
