What is the Student Directory?
The Student Directory (formerly LawList) is the Harvard Law School online student directory within HLS Amicus. As a member of the community, you can log in at any time to update your personal information or search for the contact information of other student.
What is my profile?
Your profile in the Student Directory is your personal contact information page and a way to share information about yourself with your classmates. You can customize your profile to be as general or specific as you would like. The more information you put in the better we can connect you to other HLS students with shared interests to form a greater community. You can provide recent and previous work experience, areas of interest and expertise, as well as hobbies.
Who can see my profile, and what can they see?
- All HLS students, staff and faculty can see name, program and section, and email address by default. They can also see any additional information you add to your profile and mark as visible.
- You have the ability to mark fields as private or visible; if set to private no one will be able to see that information.
- All students of HLS are included in the Student Directory by default. If you do not want to be listed in the Student Directory please contact the Office of the Registrar at email@example.com.
- HLS Alumni that you connect with, through mentorship or email, will be able to see your profile as you will be able to see theirs.
What types of searches can I perform?
You can search for fellow students using a variety of criteria including: name, keyword, class year, section, HLS program, city, state, country, HLS student organizations and more.
You are able to use multiple search criteria as well as dictate the importance of each criterion.
Can I save contacts in the Student Directory?
Yes, to save a contact, click on the “view full profile” drop down button to the right of the contacts name and information. Select the “Save to my contacts” option. The contact will now be saved under the “Saved Contacts” button on your right hand navigation menu.
Can I decide what information I want displayed?
Harvard Law School has made every effort to give you the flexibility to share as much or as little information as you wish. The information you provide forms part of the school’s records and is not accessible to anyone except users of HLS Amicus. HLS Amicus offers the ability to hide information on a field-by-field basis, except for name, HLS program, class year, email and section. Simply adjust the “visible / private” settings for each entry. If an HLS community member searches for your record, any information that you have chosen to be private will not be provided. If you make a mistake or change your mind about removing any information from view, just adjust the visibility box. The changes you make are effective immediately.
