UC Law has just launched a mobile version of its website, making it easier for smartphone and tablet users to access information quickly about the law school. “The new mobile website is a quick reference guide for our law school audience,” said Sherry Y. English, Director of Communications at the school. “It highlights important student information such as the academic calendar, career information, and program information. Visitors will also find information about law library hours, room scheduling, and news and events.” Users visiting the law school at www.law.uc.edu via a smartphone or tablet will be automatically directed to the new mobile site, which features access to the most popular parts of the school’s full website. According to a June 2012 Pew Research study, almost one in five cell phone owners do most of their online browsing on their phone, instead of a computer or other device. Of the 88% of American adults who own cell phones, 55% use the device to go online.
