New law.msu.edu Offers Increased Value to All Visitors

EAST LANSING, Mich. – Michigan State University College of Law has launched its new and improved Web site today. The Law College’s www.law.msu.edu, which has undergone a complete redesign, allows visitors from all areas to enjoy a user-centered design that makes it easier to navigate through dynamic content.

The new features and streamlined look gives increased value to students, faculty, alumni, researchers and visitors of the site. It is designed to make it easier for visitors to find a wealth of information on any Law College program, faculty member, student service and much more.

“The Law College’s commitment to excellence among the law community and through its affiliation with a top research university is reflected in this new look and design,” Kristen Flory, director of the Law College’s Marketing and Communications said. “The site’s expanded content areas and usability are beneficial to visitors and those who are a part of the MSU Law community, including students, faculty, staff and alumni.”

MSU Law alumni are able to get in touch with their classmates and fellow alumni by having a centralized login area for all alumni to access the MSU Law online community. “The online community for MSU Law alumni demonstrates the Law College’s dedication to all of its alumni,” Laurie Schaibly, director of the Law College’s Alumni Relations said. “It is our goal that alumni will use the new site to stay connected and learn about events they can attend with their classmates and friends.”

Other features of the site include updated news and events pages, video segments informing visitors on a variety of topics, and an experts page that directs media to specific experts in areas of the law, which is still under construction. As the new law.msu.edu continues to expand and adjust, we welcome any feedback you have to offer.

MSU College of Law was founded in 1891 and is a private institution of higher learning devoted exclusively to professional education in law. The Law College is one of only a few private law schools to be affiliated with a research university enabling it to provide a comprehensive interdisciplinary legal education program. Classes offered in its state-of-the-art facilities provide students the benefits of a Big Ten campus while maintaining the small school culture. Its 2006 graduates achieved a 93 percent bar examination passage rate nationwide and the Law College’s Intellectual Property and Communications Law Program falls in the nation’s top-20 according to U.S. News & World Report. The Law College is one of the oldest continuously operating independent law colleges in the nation. For more information about the law college, visit www.law.msu.edu.
