Word to PDF conversion for class assignments
Your professor will have the final say, however, we advise you to send assignments to your professor as PDF files instead of Word files. This ensures that your formatting, including fonts, stays the same. Each version of Word is different. However:
- You should have a “File” menu.
- In that menu, you should have an option for “Save as Adobe PDF.”
Look around, and practice. If you printed from your laptop in the library last semester, the process for creating the PDF is the same.
Law library access
The law library is open to students, faculty, and staff, but closed to the public. Library hours.
Danna Young, the writing specialist, will be available virtually for one-on-one writing help. Email her to set an appointment.
The Arkansas JLAP office is currently closed to the public; however, they are available by phone (501-907-2529) and email for assistance. They will also be starting a peer connection group for law students using Zoom in the next week or so. We’ll provide information when we have it. Website
