Computer Services Help Desk

Each semester, our Information Technology department schedules regular hours to answer questions regarding computer maintenance, to diagnose any computer glitches, and to assist with connecting to the Charleston School of Law wireless network, printers and more. The Help Desk is located in the Sol Blatt Jr. Law Library, Room 115. Hours are posted on bulletin boards located in the library.


Students will receive a law school email account during their orientation. Official communications to and from the school will always be sent to this account.

Off-Campus Access

Faculty and students may access numerous electronic resources while off campus with their computer. Access is available when you click on a database on the library's database and catalog page from off campus. You are challenged for your user name and password. The user name is your complete Charleston School of Law email address and the password is the one created to access your Charleston School of Law email.


Many professors use Westlaw's course management system, TWEN, to manage their courses. With TWEN, faculty members may post syllabi and course materials online in one place that is easily accessible to students. For information about TWEN, contact Melissa Strickland, reference librarian, at ext. 4908. Access to TWEN is through your Westlaw password. Questions regarding your Westlaw password should be directed to Melissa Strickland at ext. 4908.
