network policies

  • wired or wireless: same

  • local network is open

  • internet requires MACself-registration

  • router enforced


classroom policies

  • all rooms have wired desks

  • no “off switch” for professors

  • most rooms now have wifi — intentionally or not

  • access is similar throughout the building


summary: student

  • open access from my computer

  • pretty open from lab computers

  • fairly open library computers

  • pay-to-print


summary: guest

  • no internet access from my computer

  • fairly open library computer

    • can save to USB or CD-R

  • no word processing

  • pay-to-print


levels of locking

  • our computers: locked +/–

  • their computers: patched (we hope)

    • could require control software

  • classroom network: no “off” switch

    • could provide faculty a big red switch

    • could limit access (students would rebel)


the more the better

less CONTROL or TRUST more


issues

  • students surfing in class

  • exam honesty/collection

  • inappropriate network use

  • email list abuse

  • printing abuse


issues: solutions

  • we can (and do) address these issues with technological “locks”

    • does this really solve anything?

    • what messages does it send?


are locks a solution?

  • detriment to technology literacy

  • encourage “helpless” users

  • communicate lack of trust

    • unlocked cabin

    • deadbolts on NYC apartment


are locks a solution?

  • give us a false sense of security

  • annoy legitimate users

  • seldom stop determined bad guy

  • undermine professional values


professional values

  • ABA Model Rules of Professional Conduct, Rule 8.4(c):

    • It is professional misconduct for a lawyer to: … engage in conduct involving dishonesty, fraud, deceit or misrepresentation;…


professional values

  • expectations for new lawyers are clear, why should law students be different?

  • community values protecting a community good

  • even non-lawyers will likely enter a field with similar expectations


suggestion

  • student laptops

    • enough restrictions to keep them out of real trouble (require patches and antivirus)

    • open enough to allow experimentation

    • profs/staff set rules

    • peers address disruptive activity directly


discussion

  • open/closed balance

  • technology literacy

  • honor codes

  • personal ethics

  • outside pressures
