Appropriate Use Policy for Information Technology

Please note that registered law students are responsible for reading and abiding by Pace University’s Appropriate Use Policy for Information Technology; it is your responsibility to access the Appropriate Use Policy. Should allegations arise which implicate a student in misuse of IT resources, it will not be deemed a defense that he or she was unfamiliar with the policy. Pace University reserves the right to amend or otherwise revise this document as may be necessary to reflect future changes made in the IT environment. Each student is responsible for reviewing this Policy periodically to ensure continued compliance with all Pace University IT guidelines.

Access to technical resources at Pace University School of Law is a privilege and carries with it a responsibility to protect those resources. It is the policy of this Law School and Pace University that all computing, telecommunications, and associated network facilities be used ethically and legally, in accordance with the University’s mission and all applicable licenses and contracts. Students are not permitted to install, delete or otherwise modify the software or hardware on the computers in the Law Library or anywhere else at the Law School or University. Any use that would impede teaching, learning or research, hinder the functioning of the Law School or University, violate an applicable license or contract, damage community relations or relations with institutions with whom Pace shares responsibility, or violate federal copyright law, violates this policy. Violation of this policy may result in suspension of privileges to access the information technology involved, initiation of disciplinary procedures or, in extreme cases, criminal prosecution under federal or state law. Students are responsible for all usage that is done under his or her student ID. Students should never disclose their passwords to anyone else.

Law Student Account Information

There is a single login required for all Pace University and Pace Law School resources in the pace.edu domain. Your MyPace username or account login will be required to identify yourself when accessing all resources on the intranet and network including email, student-use workstations on the Pace Law School campus, authentication on the wireless network and the MyPace portal as well as additional resources. Your MyPace username will be your initials followed by randomized numbers and looks similar to js12345w. If you do not know your MyPace username, you can search for it in the Pace University Directory.

Using the Pace University Directory to find contact information:

  1. Go to https://directory.pace.edu and type your name in the field titled
    Search by Name
  2. Select Students or All from the dropdown list under Person Type
    and click Search
  3. In the Results pane, select the View Details link for your name from the list
  4. Your contact information will open in a new window

Activating Your New MyPace Account

First-time students who get a new MyPace username and password must activate their account and set up their security questions before they can log into Pace systems.  New MyPace accounts can be activated via the Apps/Downloads/Account Management (ADAM) website at http://adam.pace.edu.  Click on Account Activation (top right) and provide your username and initial MyPace password.  If you have never logged in, your password will be your initials from your first and last name (lower-case), followed by a hyphen, and then your date of birth in MM-DD-YYYY format.  For example, if your name is John Smith, and you were born on January 3, 1990, your default password would be js-01-03-1990. Users are prompted to change their password when activating their MyPace account for the first time.  For assistance with creating a new password, please review the Password Security Guidelines at https://aspnetweb.pace.edu/adam/guidelines.html.  Once the password is changed, all other Pace system accounts will be reset to that new password.  Next, select two different security questions and type in your answers.  Answers are case-sensitive and should be complex enough that others cannot easily guess them.   *Important* Once your password has been changed, please do not share it with anyone.

All Pace Law School students are provided two email addresses – one is the MyPace username followed by @pace.edu (e.g. js12345w@pace.edu), and the law school specific email address which is generally first_initial_last_name@law.pace.edu (e.g. jsmith@law.pace.edu.) All email is delivered to the one mailbox at http://outlook.com/owa.pace.edu.
