This site is a place for our CALI reps to gather the latest materials and how they can promote CALI to their students and faculty. It is kept up to date by Scott Lee, CALI’s Community Marketing Specialist.
The Center for Computer-Assisted Legal Instruction (CALI) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit consortium of law schools, law libraries, and related organizations. Almost every United States law school is a member of CALI and they make up the bulk of our membership. In keeping with our Mission Statement, CALI conducts applied research and development in the area of computer-mediated legal education and creates tools that increase access to justice.
Specifically, CALI hosts and facilitates the creation of CALI Lessons, a library of over 1,000 interactive legal tutorials written by law professors and geared towards law students. In 2012, we began publishing open and free casebooks with our eLangdell® Press publishing wing. Additionally, CALI has partnered with Chicago-Kent College of Law’s Center for Access to Justice & Technology to create A2J Author®, a tool designed to create guided interviews that help Self-Represented Litigants to navigate the legal landscape. CALI also provides a number of tools and services for its members such as InstaPoll, Classcaster® and the CALI Excellence for the Future Awards® and hosts the annual Conference for Law School Computing®.
