Terms of Use

The Hallway is administered by the University of Washington's Daniel J. Evans School of Public Policy and Governance. The use of Hallway materials is subject to the terms of the membership agreement and terms of use.


Only faculty and instructors in public administration and related fields, as well government agencies who use materials in their training programs, are eligible for membership with the Hallway. Students should not have unrestricted access to the case parts and teaching materials.

By accepting the membership agreement, you agree to access and use the materials provided by the Hallway solely for educational, classroom, or research purposes. This agreement extends only to the member, and the member agrees not to allow anyone else access to their username and password and agrees to be liable for any misuse of that username and password that may result from a violation of this agreement.

Distributing and Re-Publishing

Currently registered members of the Electronic Hallway are authorized to download, store, copy, and distribute Hallway materials for the length of their paid membership. However this information may only be distributed to employees or students who are associated with the member. In addition, you may post materials to a website course page, though it needs to be password protected. With all Hallway materials, you have the option of printing a permission to copy letter that allows you to copy materials you have downloaded for instructional use. The permission to copy letter is valid for the duration of your paid membership.

Copyright is retained by the authors of the cases. If you would like to re-publish a case in a book or other print material, please contact the case author directly to request permission.

For Pay-Per-Use case permissions requests, please contact hallhelp@uw.edu directly.

Any additional comments and questions relating to feedback on case content, issues with the website, and other non-teaching items may be sent to the Hallway staff at hallhelp@uw.edu
