What the !#%$ are CALI Lessons?
The Center for Computer-Assisted Legal Instruction (CALI) creates interactive tutorials (aka CALI Lessons) for law students, written by law professors.
There are currently over 1,000 of these tutorials which cover legal concepts covered in all first year classes and a wide variety of second and third year classes.
So, why would you use CALI Lessons? These lessons can be a useful tool to help strengthen your understanding of certain legal topics discussed in class, or just to quiz yourself before an exam!
CALI also has an ongoing podcast, with every episode discussing a different legal concept. If you want to review the basics of consideration in Contracts or creating a security interest in Secured Transactions, put one of these on.
And if you want to do something creative while also learning about legal research, CALI has a coloring book for you: What Color is Your C.F.R.!
To access CALI Lessons and additional content, you must create a CALI account. For a registration authorization code, please email a reference librarian.
