CALI Lessons: Free study materials for law students
As you are starting your new classes, we'd like to remind you about the valuable learning resources provided by the nonprofit Center for Computer-Assisted Legal Instruction (www.cali.org) for free. They include CALI Lessons, podcasts, and casebooks.
If you are unfamiliar, CALI Lessons (www.cali.org/lessons) are interactive tutorials written by law faculty and constantly kept up to date. They can be used to study or test your knowledge. The materials are rigorous, but short, taking 20-40 minutes to complete each lesson. There are more than 1,000 lessons available to help you study 40 different legal subject areas as well as federal rules ebooks.
CALI Podcasts (www.cali.org/podcasts) are 10-minute audio recordings of law professors straightforwardly explaining narrow legal topics. Ideal for when you're always on the go.
CALI's eLangdell Press (www.elangdell.cali.org) published free casebooks and book chapters authored by law faculty. All are available under a Creative Commons license so that faculty and students can use and remix the materials to suit their educational needs.
When registering a new account at cali.org, you must use our school's authorization code to create your account. Ask a law librarian to get this code. You'll only need to use the school's authorization code once. After that, you may use the e-mail/password you used to sign up to login at cali.org.
Good luck with the rest of the semester!
