How to send an email to an entire class

At the beginning of each semester, UA Little Rock builds email lists for each class. These lists are automatically updated each day and have all the class’ students and faculty member subscribed. Anyone subscribed can send to the class via this list. They are set up as “Discussion Lists,” which means replies to emails go to the entire list, NOT just the original sender. Steve Hyatt and Michael Flannery can send to these lists as well.

How to send:

The format for the email address is CCCCXXXXYY@ualr.edu where CCCC is either LAW or LAWB, XXXX is your course number and YY is the section number. All of this information can be found on your class roster.

For instance:

RWA II taught by Spence this semester is LAWB638115@UALR.EDU.  6381 is the course number and it is section 15.

Conflict of Laws taught by Mader is LAW635630@UALR.EDU. 6356 is the course number and 30 is the section number.
