Administrative Portal

The Administrative Portal is a "web portal" designed for staff to conveniently access important announcements and useful information in an interactive, real time format. You can find a link to the Administrative Portal at the bottom of the Law School web pages or by going directly to http://mlawadmin.law.umich.edu.

Admin Portal

There are actually two URLs for the administrative portal: One that requires a login (for access from home or other non-work computers) and one that doesn’t.

Login-free URL: http://mlawadmin.law.umich.edu/auto (to make this work you need to add ‘law.umich.edu’ to your local intranet zone; see instructions below.)

Login URL: http://mlawadmin.law.umich.edu

For convenience, you will probably want to create a Favorite/Bookmark to this site. The process for this Web site is different from the usual practice of adding favorites (IE) / bookmarking links (Firefox), so please follow the instructions below to create them.
