Southwestern provides this website as a service to all law school constituents and stakeholders. Nothing contained herein constitutes an inducement, promise, or contract of any kind. Southwestern is committed to respecting personal privacy, and we believe the practices that we have put into place allow us to guard individual privacy while allowing us to gather accurate data in aggregate form for internal purposes.

Information Gathering

Southwestern gathers information in aggregate form to track website usage including points of initial access and patterns such as visitation frequency and order. Internet Protocol (IP) addresses are not linked to anything personally identifiable, users will thereby remain anonymous while user sessions will be tracked.

For these same reasons, the law school uses “cookies” to track logins. Login information is stored when a user logs in to provide authentication for access to restricted areas of the site and for management permissions. No personal information is ever collected or analyzed through this process.

Certain areas of the website may require personally identifiable information in order to register for certain services, mailings, events, or for other specific reasons. Accessing these areas are personal decisions on the part of each individual user, and the affirmative choice to convey such personally identifiable information is the responsibility of, and at the risk of, the user. If you choose to share such personal information with us, we will not sell that information to commercial entities.

Use of Information

Southwestern uses information gathered to inform internal decision-making regarding the development and evolution of this website through the generation of aggregate statistical reports, as well as to improve functionality by diagnosing system performance issues and identifying problem areas. Website usage by individual IP addresses is not disclosed, except where there has been (or where Southwestern reasonably believes there has been) a violation of Southwestern’s Terms of Use agreement or a violation of the law.


This website has security measures in place to prevent the loss, misuse or alteration of information under our control. Please understand, however, that no website security system is failsafe, and that Southwestern cannot guarantee information security. Please review Southwestern’s Terms of Use agreement for more information.

This website contains links to other independently-run websites outside the Southwestern domain. These links are provided as a courtesy, and Southwestern neither endorses nor is responsible for the content or privacy practices of such websites.


Any questions or concerns regarding this privacy statement, the practices of this website, or any individual privacy-related matter should be directed to the law school at
