NOTICE TO STUDENTS: It is expected that every student regularly check his/her Mason email account, as it is used for all Scalia Law School communications, including emergency notices as well as academic, student organization, physical plant and career information. There are no excuses for missing deadlines or other important information due to failure to read emails sent to student email accounts. If you forward your Mason e-mail to another account, be sure to regularly check your Mason account to make sure that it is NOT over quota and bouncing messages.

Student Listservs

The Law School makes heavy use of student listservs for communicating important information from the law school administration on classes, weather alerts and cancellations, career services information, and school-wide events. The student organizations also send out messages announcing events of interest to law students. Students will be automatically subscribed to the appropriate list before the beginning of each academic year. If you believe that you are on the wrong list or you're not receiving messages, please contact Deborah Keene at
