Connect to Law School Network Share: For Windows

Connecting from Windows

There are always two steps to getting access to shared folders on the law school file server. First, you have to get connected to the Emory network (either from off-campus or via EmoryUnplugged), and second, you have to access the particular path to your folders.

Connecting from off-campus

If you wish to connect from off-campus (home, café, etc.), you will have to establish a VPN (Virtual Private Network) connection into the Emory network. A VPN connection essentially mimics your connection as if you were on campus.

On-campus users must be using EmoryUnplugged

If you are on campus, you must be connected to EmoryUnplugged before following the instructions. Here are instructions to connect EmoryUnplugged.

Accessing your folders
  1. Click "Start."
  2. In the "Search programs and files" folder, copy and paste the appropriate path from the list below.
    • For ELJ, EILR, BDJ, and ECGAR, use this path link:  \\nasn2ac.eu.emory.edu\lawstudents
    • For Barton, Turner, and Moot Court, use this path link:  \\nasn2ac.eu.emory.edu\lawfacstaff
    • You will see the sub-folders to which you have been granted access.
  3. Wait for the log-in box to appear, and then carefully enter your credentials as follows:
    • Enter EMORYUNIVAD\YOUR NETID, for example: EMORYUNIVAD\dra 
    • Password: YOUR EMORY PASSWORD
    • CHECK "Remember my credentials"

Computer and Software Recommendations

Required computer systems

Emory Law School requires students to own a computer system. Most students choose to buy a laptop computer. The Law School is equipped with a high-speed wireless network and most faculty members permit students to use laptop computers to take notes during class. Almost all students write their exams on laptop computers. When considering the purchase of a laptop computer for law school it's important that you consider the following items:

Apple Notebook

We recommend the MacBook Air or Pro with the following minimum specs:

  • Intel i5 processor
  • 8GB RAM
  • latest Operating system (currently El Capitan)
  • Microsoft Office 365
  • 3 year AppleCare Protection Plan: Apple store Lenox Square: (404) 926-3085
Windows Notebook

While there are a number of PC manufacturers, our preferred PC computer is a Dell laptop. We strongly recommend that the minimum specifications be as below:

  • Intel i5 processor, maximum speed available
  • 8GB RAM
  • Windows 10
  • Microsoft Office 365
  • A MINIMUM 3 year (preferably on-site) warranty
Tips for using your computer at Emory Law School
  • Bring the original restore disks that came with your computer with you to Atlanta. We can't help you restore your system unless you have them. If your computer didn't come with restore disks, then it probably has a restore partition. There is a utility provided by the manufacturer that will enable you to restore your system or create restore disks. Use that utility to create a restore DVD or similar.
  • Back up your documents frequently! We really mean this - get a thumb drive or an external hard drive and use it. Sign up for a Dropbox account or get familiar with GoogleDocs.

Adding Money to EmoryCard

  3. Click add cash & complete information.
  4. Next screen enter credit card info.
  5. You're done!

But I'm working for a professor as an RA this year; how do I print for them?

Simple! You'll still need to fill out a proxy/RA form for the use, but if you need to print or make copies for a professor, simply take your files on a thumbdrive or the materials you need copied to IST, and they'll do the work and bill it to the professor's account. We'll make sure they have a list of all students RAs and which professor they're working for.

But I'm on journal this year; how does that work?

Rather than a separate journal log-in, each journal will have a dedicated user card kept at the desk so when you're ready to print you can just go check out the card from the desk. These cards may not leave the law library, so if you're doing work at other libraries on campus, please save your work and print it here (this will enable everyone who needs to print for journal work to do so with minimal delays).

But I lost my ID last year, so I don't have one . . . 

You'll need to get a replacement from the Emory Card Office. Since you need your ID for printing and building access, you'll want to get the replacement as soon as possible.
