CHICAGO � The University of Chicago Law School began blocking students access to the Internet in classrooms last month to help them concentrate on course instruction, the school said. Saul Levmore, who is dean of the school, said he had been trying to simply persuade students not to distract themselves with the Internet during class, but turned to simply shutting off access when he found that the school’s building had the capability to block wired and wireless access. “It got a lot easier when I found I had technology on my side,” he said in an interview. Keeping students from surfing the Internet during class is similar to keeping them from picking up calls on their cell phones, he said. Levmore has received inquiries from about 10 other law schools interested in possibly following suit on the move, he said.
