Students print to Law Library printers using a system called Pharos, an intelligent printing software solution to reduce printing waste and to improve print service.
Each student receives $50 (500 impressions) per semester. If a student chooses single-sided printing, $.10 is deducted per page; if a student chooses duplex printing, $.09 is deducted per page.
Any remaining balance from the fall semester zeroes out on December 31. The spring semester impressions carry over until August 14. Students enrolled in summer classes receive an additional 200 impressions that also zero out on August 14.
Students participating in the following activities receive additional prints: Law Review, Moot Court, and Research Assistants. Please see the Circulation Desk for more detailed information.
