Are you looking for help understanding some of the difficult concepts you have encountered in your courses? Do you want to test your knowledge of course material before exam time rolls around? Would you like a helpful self-check to see what your weaknesses might be? Then you may want to try a CALI (Computer-Assisted Legal Instruction) lesson.
CALI is a collection of over 700 interactive exercises designed to supplement traditional law school instruction in over 35 different subject areas. The lessons are written primarily by law professors and are designed to take about one hour to complete. The format varies depending on the subject. You can browse a list of available lessons by general topic or view separate lists of 1L and upper level lessons. There is also a page showing which CALI lessons correspond to commonly used casebooks, as well as a series of CALI crossword puzzles.
Lessons can be run from the CALI web site or downloaded to your computer. To access CALI, you must create a CALI account using your school’s authorization code. Just email the help desk or call the reference desk (860-570-5068) for the law school’s code.
