How to Publicize Your Upcoming Events

Law School faculty, staff and students can reserve space at the Law School for an event using the room request 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.

W&M Events Calendar. You will be prompted to enter your "WMuserid" (your email address minus the "email.wm.edu") and your password.

You will be prompted to enter some details about your event (such as title, day and time, and room number). Off-campus? Choose "other" under Location on the form. On the final part of the form, you will be asked to flag your event to other calendars.  ***Please check the box for "Law School Homepage" or "Law School Events" to ensure your event appears on our Law School website and on the law lobby monitor.***

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

Once your information is posted to the W&M Events Calendar, the Communications Office will create a myLaw event listing for you. The Staff or a student assistant also will post the info to the WMDigest (a listserv of W&M faculty and staff) and local calendars (like those at wydaily.com and vagazette.com). 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.

The Communications Office will make every effort to share your event information. However, please keep in mind that information received after 3 p.m. may not be shared until the following day.

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

Student Happenings is an events round-up shared by William & Mary's Office of Leadership Development. Announcements are sent via email twice weekly, on Monday and Thursday.

Diversity Happenings is a weekly email bulletin for events and activities across the William & Mary campus.  Submit your information by 8 a.m. on Monday for that week's bulletin.

Student Bar Association E-Announcements are emitted by the SBA twice a week, on Sunday and Wednesday evenings.

What about flyers or posters?

You can give a flyer or poster to Kaye Hibbard in the main reception area 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 on the bulletin board in the cafe. 

Questions?

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.
