Resource Spotlight: CALI

Has it been a while since Con Law? Do you need to brush up on your Criminal Practice and Procedure? Are you struggling to remember your Alternative Dispute Resolution? The Center for Computer-Assisted Legal Instruction (CALI) is your one-stop shop for a refresher on all those classes in law school you thought you’d never need but now really wish you’d paid more attention during. And the best part? It’s free to subscribers!

So what is CALI? It’s an online consortium of almost every law school in the United States and has a library of over 1,000 interactive legal tutorials written by law professors and geared towards law students. Topics are varied and include basic 1L courses like Criminal and Civil Procedure, Contracts, Legal Concepts and Skills and Torts to more robust 2L & 3L courses like International Law, Environmental Law, Cyber Law, Copyright and more. Once your account is set up, you can log in to CALI from anywhere. Courses run from 45 minutes to over an hour and can be paused and resumed at any time. The courses are updated regularly to ensure the information provided is as current and accurate as possible.

CALI is a great way to review those subjects you may not use every day or to simply learn something new. Call the library for more information or stop by for the login instructions!
