How to Publicize Your Upcoming Events

Law School faculty, staff and students are asked to reserve space at the Law School for an event using the event scheduling and room reservation form.

About the William & Mary Events Calendar Form

After you have submitted the form and received your room assignment, please begin your publicity effort by adding your event information to the William & Mary Events Calendar.  Please note off-campus events hosted by student organizations may be listed on the calendar.

The William & Mary Events Calendar form will prompt you to enter your "WMuserid" (your email address minus the "") and your password.

You will be prompted to enter some details about your event (such as title, day and time, and room number). You also will be asked to flag your event to other calendars.  ***Please choose the "Law School Homepage" or "Law School Events" to ensure your event will appear on our Law School website and on the law lobby monitor.*

Please note that calendar entries created after noon on Friday may not be shared until the following Tuesday.

Here's what the Communications Office can do to help spread the word

Once your information is posted to the William & Mary Events Calendar, the Communications Office will create a myLaw event listing for you so that your event appears in the Docket Digest. 

For lectures, symposia or other events open to the public, the staff or a student assistant also will post the info to the WMDigest (a listserv for W&M faculty and staff) and local calendars (like those at and We also will create an event entry on the the Law School's Facebook page unless this duplicates your efforts. We'll also plan to tweet about your event. If you are tweeting about it, please mention @WMLawSchool.

Here are some additional places you may wish to post your event information

Law School Community Announcements are shared via the SBA.

Student Happenings is an events round-up shared by William & Mary's Office of Leadership Development.

What about flyers or posters?

You can give a flyer or poster to the receptionist inside the dean's suite and ask her to post it in the mailroom where faculty and staff have mailboxes. You also may post flyers or posters on the bulletin boards outside the restrooms in the law library and in the cafe. 


Please let us know how we can help.  We'd also appreciate hearing from you if you have difficulty using these sites or if you learn of new ways to share event information.
