What Is CALI?
The School of Law is a member of the The Center for Computer-Assisted Legal Instruction (CALI), a non-profit consortium of law schools that supports the use of technology in legal education. The most popular CALI feature is its library of interactive, on-line lessons created by law professors from around the country. These lessons - more than 800 lessons covering more than 32 legal subject areas - allow students to review and test their legal understanding and rule memorization.
How Do I Access CALI Lessons?
CALI lessons are listed on the CALI website where they can be searched by subject, author, etc. The same lessons that a student can find on the CALI website are attached to many TWEN courses, pre-filtered by the course subject matter. (Please note that even when CALI lessons are attached to a TWEN course, the School of Law does not monitor students' CALI activity or performance on CALI lessons).
To access lessons, a student will need to create a unique CALI account.
- To create an account, visit the CALI registration page, http://www.cali.org/user/register
- During initial registration, you will need the School of Law's authorization code. You can find the authorization code in your Law Library Orientation packet; you can ask any of the School's law librarians for it; or, if you are logged into this website, you can find it listed on this page (under CALI).
- During registration, you will be asked to select your own username and password.
- On subsequent visits, you can go straight to CALI, http://www.cali.org, and enter the username and password you selected.
First, please note that the School of Law does not have access to the CALI username and password you selected during registration; if you forget it, you will need to go through CALI to retrieve it (see CALI's 'Request New Password' link).
If you have other questions, please contact the Access Services Librarian, John Jensen, at (202) 274-6597 or firstname.lastname@example.org
