How do I forward my Law School e-mail?

Students are expected to read their Law School emails by using the email system provided to them by the Law School. Although the Law School allows students to forward their school email to another email service provider, it is highly discouraged. The Law School has experienced difficulties forwarding emails to other email service providers. On several occasions these email service providers have blocked the Law School or the University from sending emails to them. The Law School does not control how these email service providers manage their systems; nor the reason for blocking us. We can only guarantee delivery of email messages to the Law School email system. Unfortunately, this is a problem that other major universities are experiencing as well. Instructions on how to forward student emails to another email service provider can be found at the Law School's website, however, students may do so at their own risk.
