Need help with Canvas?


Canvas is Stanford University’s Learning Management System. Canvas is an easy to use application, equipped with robust tools to allow instructors to easily communicate and engage with students in and out of the classroom. All law school LAW-designated courses have a course site in Canvas and are automatically published one month before the start of the quarter. For help and assistance, please email us at edtech@law.stanford.edu.
