Account Management

Law Center students, faculty, and staff are issued two computer accounts: a Law Center account and a University-issued myLSU account. These accounts have the same username but are two separate accounts that access different resources. See below for more information on each of these accounts.

Law Center Account

Incoming first-year law students receive their Law Center account via their myLSU email address just before classes begin in the Fall. Law Center logon ID passwords must be at least 10 characters in length and contain at least 3 of the following 4 character types: uppercase (ABC…), lowercase (abc…), numeric (123…), and symbols(~!@#$…). Passwords must be changed at least every 90 days. Self-service password maintenance is available on the web at the URL below.

This web page allows passwords to be changed or reset. In the case of forgotten passwords, it can be reset by answering several security questions. Students are highly encouraged to visit this site early to set their security questions so they are available when needed. If you need additional assistance resetting your password, they can also be changed at the Law Center Computing Services Helpdesk in Room 317 or at the Library Reference desk.

Law Center Account is used for:

    • Law Center PCs (staff and faculty office computers, library 1st floor public computers, library 1st floor electronic classroom, library 2nd floor computer lab)
    • Off-campus access to Law Center web-based databases linked from Law Library’s website

myLSU Account

Resources provided at the University level are accessed through myLSU accounts. These resources include student email, campus network access, online registration, grades, and W2 and related employment records. Students who attended LSU as an undergrad should already have a myLSU account. Those who didn’t attend LSU as an undergrad should have received a myLSU account when they registered for classes at the Law Center.

myLSU account is used for:

    • myLSU web site – contains registration info, financial info, etc. You can change your myLSU password here by logging in and expanding “Personal Preferences” on the left side of the screen and choosing “myLSU Password Change.” Click here to reset your myLSU password.
    • Tigerware – website for students to download LSU licensed software (Microsoft Office, etc.)

If you have problems logging in to the myLSU or Tigerware websites or are having myLSU email problems, it could be an indication of a problem with your individual myLSU account and/or password. LSU maintains these accounts so any individual account problems would have to be referred to the LSU IT Helpdesk at 578-3375 or helpdesk@lsu.edu.
