Appendices

The University of California, Irvine School of Law is deeply committed to the performance of public service work. We expect that our students and faculty will be regularly engaged in public service work throughout their careers.

Public service work, of course, can take many forms and reflect many values, including activities such as helping those who cannot afford legal services and working for public interest and government organizations. We encourage our students and faculty to set yearly public service goals similar to those expected of practicing attorneys.

The goal for first year students is 20 pro bono hours; the goal for second and third-year students is fifty pro bono hours each year. The Director of Pro Bono Programs will track hours and provide guidelines for such public service work. Students meeting the pro bono goals shall be recognized for their outstanding service, including a notation on the students’ transcripts.

UC Irvine School of Law wants to maximize every student’s learning experience. Professors vary in terms of their views and policies as to whether to allow recording of classes. Each professor decides this for his or her own class. A professor may rescind permission to record his or her own class.

Unless otherwise expressly allowed by the professor, students may not record a class. Permission to record a class applies exclusively to the student who received permission from the professor. The recording may not be accessed or utilized by any other individual. No replication of the recording may be made without the express permission of the professor. Recordings cannot be posted to any form of digital media. Students who violate this policy are subject to disciplinary action under the Honor Code (see Appendix 2.A.).

Accommodated Students

Students registered with UC Irvine’s Disability Services Center whose verified disability accommodation includes recording lectures via an electronic device (i.e., Smart Pen, computer, digital recorder, etc.) may record their classes subject to the following:

  1. Classes cannot be recorded until the Assistant Dean for Student Services has notified the student that their instructors were informed that a student with a verified disability accommodation is enrolled in the course and has an ADA accommodation to record classes. The Assistant Dean for Student Services shall not disclose the name of the accommodated student to the instructor.

  2. Students must immediately inform the Assistant Dean of Student Services of any changes in their class schedule.

  3. Permission to record a class applies exclusively to the student whose verified disability accommodation includes recording lectures via an electronic device. Recordings may not be accessed or utilized by any other individual. No replication of the recording may be made without the express permission of the professor. Recordings cannot be posted to any form of digital media. Students who violate this policy are subject to disciplinary action under the Honor Code (see Appendix 2.A.).

  4. Professors may periodically tell accommodated students to stop recording during sensitive portions of a lecture.

In accordance with the above policy, all students should be aware that any class, and discussions held therein, may be subject to recording.
